  • South
  • It all started with the concept of slavery. Both sides of the U.S had different views on it. The south believes in slavery but the north does not. Not only slavery they differed on, it was also states' rights. The north gave more allegiance to the country while the south gave more allegiance to their state. The bottom line is, they didn't agree on many things.
  • A Change
  • Bye Compromise of 1850!
  • In 1820, Missouri decided to become a state. They wanted to become a salve state, so they entered as a slave state. Due to this, the north wanted another free state, so they added Maine. All of this was the Missouri Compromise, basically a bandage on a knife stab.
  • A Push for the U.S. to be Closer to War
  • It is now 1850, when California wanted to enter. That state entered as a free state. This now made more free states than slave states, but the south did not like that. So, they addressed the Fugitive Slave Law. Due to this law, the Georgia Platform, led by Alexander Stephans, approved the Compromise of 1850.
  • More Disagreement
  • Not my president!
  • Four years later, 1854, something happened that made the Compromise of 1850 get repealed. The Kansas-Nebraska Act now allowed popular sovereignty. States could now vote if hey should be a slave or free state. Not only this happened, the Republican Party was also created during this time period. No one knew what was about to come in 10 years.
  • Compromise of 1850
  • Kansas-Nebraska Act
  • In 1857, there was an erupt in the case of slavery that caught attention. Dred Scott was moved to a free state and demanded his freedom. However, the court said that slaves are not citizens and could not stop slavery. This created more tension between the north and south.
  • Time has passed and it is currently after the election. No one saw this coming, but Lincoln had won the title of President out of the other three candidates. The South was not happy about this, they nullified to accept him. Lincoln and the South disagree on topics such as secession. The South thought that they could secede whenever they wanted, Lincoln did not think so. But, South Carolina was first to secede and Georgia was fifth.
