Storyboard Text

  • If Lincoln so much as steps foot in the White House, the Southern states will leave the Union indefinitely. You have my word. Make the right choice America.
  • So long, America. See you never!
  • The Election of 1860 was a big deciding factor for the Civil War because the South issued an ultimatum: If Abraham Lincoln won the election, the Southern states would secede from the Union.
  • Today we become a new nation. We become the CONFEDERACY!
  • Abraham Lincoln of the Republican Party won the Presidential election of 1860. Southerners were livid with the results.
  • Confederacy who? Not sure what you're talking about there, bud.
  • Southerners lived up to their word, and in December of 1860, before Lincoln was even in office, South Carolina seceded from the Union
  • Soon after, many other Southern states left, including Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Texas, and Louisiana. They formed a new nation, called the Confederate States of America.
  • Lincoln refused the acknowledge the secession of these states, even as practically the whole South left the Union.
  • Though the states had left the Union, Lincoln said he would not attack the newly formed Confederacy, and would only defend the North if neccesary. He hoped to prevent a war from occuring.
