  • The dispute over Slavery
  • Slavery is wrong !
  • I don't think anything is wroing with slavery.
  • Starting the Civil War
  • You're staying, because we need you for our crops. Who cares what the North thinks?
  • States rights in the North and South
  • We, (the North) think that all states should have the same rights.
  • There were disagreements all the time about whether or not there should be slaves. The ones who opposed slavery saw slavery as an illegal and sinful thing; Mostly because many people were killed for their color. The ones who weren't against Slavery saw slavery as something that would make jobs easier. Dred Scott and Harriet Scott were at the heart over all of these disoutes, because they had been affected.
  • Sectionalism and Nullification
  • Between the North and South, there were many disagreements. One of the disagreements was slavery. The North depended on industry, and slaves would take their jobs away. They were not supporters of slavery. The south however, depended heavily on agriculture. They needed slaves to pick cotton and grow plants. Another conflict was nullification. The North supported high tariffs, but tariffs only hurt the South. It took profit away from cotton.
  • Georgia Secedes
  • Oridance of Secession ____________
  • The North and South could never agree on almost anything. In the North, they believed that all states should have the same rights. In the South, they believed that each state should make their own rights.
  • Compromises in the North and South
  • What if Kansas is a free state? That way when the Whig Party Splits into a northern/southern faction, the Republican Party will rise?
  • Sectionalism had a play in the South, because the South wanted to make their own laws and rights. They had a lot of pride and saw themselves as independent. The North however saw no need to do that and decided that there should be the same rights and laws in every state. As said in a previous box, the North supported high tariffs, but the South was only hurt by tariffs because it took away cottons profit. This would go into the nullification category.
  • Georgia did not want to secede from the Union, but they did in 1861. Stephens was a supporter of slavery, so he did not want to secede. Because he was in congress, he was able to persuade other people of Georgia that seceding would do no good. Stephens eventually signed the "Ordinance of Secession," because the General Assembly voted for secession.
  • The Missouri Compromise allowed Missouri to enter the Union. The main issue was that if Missouri entered the Union, there would be more slave states than free. In the end, the North and South both got an equal amount of what they wanted. This compromise was destroyed by the Kansas-Nebraska Act. In the end, Kansas was a free state and the Republican Party rose when the Whig party split into a Northern and Southern faction.
