  • Early Monday Morning...
  • Sure I can help you, but since we don't have a lot of time before school starts, I'll tell you the 3 biggest factors that led us into war.
  • Hi Mr. Alfonso! I don't understand why we fought in the Civil War and was hoping you could help me. Can you?
  • The Compromise of 1850
  • The Compromise of 1850 gave the states in the south west territory the right to vote whether they wanted to be free or slave states. They later extended this to Kansas and Nebraska Leading to the Kansas and Nebraska Act.
  • Oh so they basically got rid of the Missouri Compromise, and what is the Kansas Nebraska Act?
  • Kansas Nebraska Act
  • Wow! That shows how important it is to have I.D to show where you live when voting
  • The Kansas Nebraska Act or "Bleeding Kansas" was about the voting of whether Kansas Should Be a free or slave state since Nebraska was a definite free state. People Were Coming into Kansas to vote and there was a lot of violence and bleeding along the way, hence "Bleeding Kansas"
  • Little Sammy doesn't understand what led us into the Civil War and has gone to his History teacher for extra help so he can pass his test later
  • The Fugitive Slave Act
