  • Election of 1860
  • "Every man is said to have his peculiar ambition. Whether it be true or not, I can say for one that I have no other so great as that of being truly esteemed of my fellow men, by rendering myself worthy of their esteem. How far I shall succeed in gratifying this ambition, is yet to be developed."
  • There were lots of black people in the free states/north and they were often captured being mistaken as slaves that ran away, and because of the Fugitive slave act the northerners were required to send them back, but first they go to curt and the judge chooses if they are free or a slave.

  • Start of a new union
  • The southern and northern states were facing a deep sectionalism because they each favored different thing in the situation of states rights. Especially with the slaves. People had many different opinions while the southern began to nullify or invalidate state laws because they weren't fair to their states beliefs.
  • We don't agree with these preposterous laws!
  • Senator Henry Clay introduced a series of resolutions on January 29, 1850,trying to find a compromise and stop the crisis between North and South. As part of the Compromise of 1850 , the Fugitive Slave Act was amended and the slave trade in Washington, D.C., was abolished. The Georgia Platform consisted of a set of resolutions accepting the Compromise of 1850. It was not an agreement of the compromise, but it said that Georgia would respect the compromise services “as a permanent adjustment of the sectional controversy.”
  • I now declare The Compromise of 1850 to try and repair the lose ends with the northern and southern states.
  • The real reason of separation was the election of Abraham Lincoln. The secession of Southern States led to the establishment of the Confederacy and ultimately the Civil War. It was the most serious secession movement in the United States and was defeated when the Union armies defeated the Confederate armies in the Civil War, 1861-65. Jefferson Davis was the president of the confederacy.
