I have all this cotton I need to farm but no hands. What should i do?
Haha, we have more power.
IT'S NOT FAIR.
Election of Lincoln
OOO, Well I gotta go.
Good Sir, did you hear Lincoln was elected?
The cotton gin expanded the key component of slavery in the Southern economy. So when the abolition movement grew, it was seen as a threat to the Southern life.
Uncle Tom's Cabin
Wow, maybe we shouldn't kill this dude, it's actually pretty morally wrong.
Getting rid of the Missouri Compromise caused anti-slavery people to think Congress was allowing the south to have more control in Congress and it made the south seem more aggressive and lead to the formation of the anti-slavery Republican party.
Yah we should start preparing just in case
The Southerners said that if Abraham Lincoln was elected as President, the Union would split, so when he was elected many states made good on their promise.
The novel was published abroad, including France and Britain, which led them to support the union. It also grew the number of people upset about slavery, wanting more people to abolish it made the south angrier.
Hey, did you read this?
Brown became a martyr for the abolitionist cause and southerners, on the other hand, began to militarize in preparation for future raids.
Hey remember that dude that had no plan and still tried to start a revolution and failed horribly. That was pretty dangerous.
