Storyboard Text

  • Slavery Arguments Between North and South
  • We abolitionist feel that you southerners really want a civil war. Because you guys aren't trying to change what you know is wrong because you "need" it.
  • We pro-slavery people feel that you abolitionist are pressuring us into getting rid of something that we need. Instead of helping us and supporting our needs, so if you want a civil war we will secede from the union.
  • Events That Happened Due to Slavery
  • MY name is Dred Scott and I'm here to sue for my fr eedom.
  • The North and South's Opinions
  • The south believed in more state authority, so each state could make their own decisions.
  • The north believed that to function all states need to follow the same rules set by the president.
  • I need slaves to run my farm I can't do everything by myself. If we secede I can keep my slaves and be economically stable.
  • The abolitionist and pro-slavery people had many compromises over slavery but way to many arguments to keep the compromises alive. Another argument would happen that then makes a new compromise. Then soon there would be no more compromises but just arguments leading the country to civil war.
  • Georgia's Debate Over Secession
  • Why would we want to secede from the union it would just cause civil war. If i can run my farm by myself then you can too.
  • The Dred Scott case was one of the most important events that caused the arguments over slavery to dramatically increase.
  • Compromises
  • The south made a lot of compromises with the north so we wouldn't secede and I can run this ginormous farm.
  • Sectionalism and nullification played big parts in states rights. Because the more the states were more proud in themselves rather than their country, and the more they ignored or refused to do things the government says wold make them believe in states rights ten times more.
  • Georgia's Involvment
  • Many people in Georgia did not want to secede, but since they were in the south many supported states rights. Georgians argued a lot mainly between small farmers and non-slave holders and large farmers and slave owners, but in the end Georgia's General Assembly voted 208 to 89 in favor of seceding.
  • Many compromises were made to ease the tension between the North and South. Like the Missouri Compromise. But the compromises couldn't last forever the south eventually seceded because of the 1860 Election when Abraham Lincoln was elected.
  • The compromises always created a lot of argument in Georgia because some people agreed with them and others didn't, because people like small farmers didn't want the country to be divided and split apart.
