The Election of 1860 and Succession
This storyboard does not have a description.
Hello! I'm Abe Lincoln and you should elect me as your next President because...
Even worse... he'll take away our slaves! He wants us to stay where we are at, when we could be growing our slave population!
President Lincoln is attacking our values! He'll take away our rights!
President Lincoln isn't an abolitionist!
But, President Lincoln will stop further expansion of slavery. That's a pretty good compromise.
As Senator, I, John J. Crittenden, propose a plan to guarantee slavery be where it is, reinstate the Missouri Compromise, and extending it all the way to the California border.
The Crittenden Compromise is not worth it! I encourage you all to vote against this plan that Senator Crittenden proposed.
THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! THE STATES ARE NOT BEING REPRESENTED!!
LET'S FORM OUR OWN NATION!! LET'S SECEDE THE UNION! THEY ARE HOLDING US BACK!
Gentlemen, the South just seceded and formed the Confederate States of America. We may have a civil war on our hands.
