[2015] Nate Stout (AB 67): A Divided Nation

Civil War Timeline

Election of 1860In this election Abraham Lincohn became president. The thing that caused an issue was that Lincoln wouldn't let slavery expand and all of his votes had come from the North, and none from the South."A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half-slave and half-free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved - I do not expect the house to fall - but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other."

Kansas-Nebraska ActThis was when the Mexican Cession land was split into Kansas and Nebraska. The bad part was that the areas would be either slave states or free states depending on votes, and it was above the slave line across the US. This angered the North.

"Bleeding Kansas"This was when Kansas had developed 2 different governments, free and slave, and eventually a battle occured. Slavery men destroyed the town of Lawrence and then later the anti-slavery men went and killed 5 people who supported slavery.

Compromise of 1850This compromise let California join the Union as a free state and made it so the rest of the Mexican Cession land became popular sovereignty. This angered the North as it broke the slave line and the South was angry as the free states had more states than them.

The South SecedesIn the year of 1860, when Lincohn was elected, the South seceded from the North. This caused the civil war because the South was a part of the US and they were trying to leave. They also had taken land that had belonged to the government.

Missouri CompromiseThis compromise made it so that Missouri could be a slave state and Maine could be a free state. This split the US because it made a line through the US where slave states could not be. (North, South)

Bleeding Kansas

Basically, in the 1800s the US was being fragmented into 2 different halves, the slave states and the free states. The country split for the reasons below and some others.
