THE CAUSES OF THE CIVIL WAR The tragic ‘fireball in the night’ imagined by Jefferson had finally rung. The Missouri Compromise had failed. Proslavery and antislavery civilians clashed in the streets and took up arms. Thousands of Northerners were willing to die for their beliefs. The Civil War had begun. The states were at war with each other. This dividing battle between the North and the South was unavoidable. The Civil War was caused by economic, political and moral problems. It all starte

Can the United States Justify the Civil War The definition of Manifest Destiny reads as: The belief in the 1840's in the inevitable territorial expansion of the United States, especially as advocated by southern slaveholders who wished to extend slavery into new territories. This explanation was transcribed from the World Book Encyclopedia's dictionary. It is directly evident that from this unbiased statement we can trace the first uprising of a separate group of people yearning to break the

Slavery in the US
Slavery in the U.S. In North America the first African slaves landed at Jamestown, Virginia, in 1619. Brought by early English privateers, they were subjected to limited servitude, a legalized status of Native American, white, and black servants preceding slavery in most, if not all, the English colonies in the New World. The number of slaves imported was small at first, and it did not seem necessary to define their legal status. Statutory recognition of slavery, however, occurred in Massachuse

Bleeding Kansas
Bleeding Kansas
Bleeding Kansas In 1854, Stephen A. Douglas of Illinois drafted the Kansas-Nebraska Act. The Act established the territories of Kansas and Nebraska. It also gave residents of these newly founded states the right to decide whether to allow slavery. In order to decide if slavery should be allowed a concept known as popular sovereignty was devised. Popular sovereignty is when residents vote to decide on an issue. Pro-slavery groups supported the bill because it gave them a chance to own slaves in t

Compromise of 1850 In 1850, the issue of slavery had once again some to haunt Congress. What seemed like a déjà vu of the Missouri Compromise, Congress would once again be split down the middle over the issue of slavery. The purpose of the Compromise of 1850 also known as the Omnibus Bill was to settle several questions that had recently surfaced within the walls of the Capitol. Unlike the Missouri Compromise, this decisions made in this compromise needed to satisfy the whole country. These reso

Abortion 1
Abortion Abortion is the termination of pregnancy before birth, resulting in, or accompanied by, the death of the fetus. Some abortions occur naturally because a fetus does not develop normally. Or because the mother has an injury or disorder that prevents her from carrying the pregnancy to a full term. This type of abortion is commonly known as a miscarriage. Other abortions are induced. Induced abortions are intentionally brought on, either because a pregnancy is unwanted or presents a risk to

The Dred Scott Decision
The Dred Scott Decision The Dred Scott decision of the Supreme Court in March 1857 was one of the major steps on the road to secession. Dred Scott was a slave who was taken to Missouri from Virginia and sold. His new master then moved to Illinois (a free state) for a while but soon moved back to Missouri. Upon his master's death, Scott claimed that since he had resided in a free state, he was consequentially a free man. The case eventually made it to the Supreme Court. As stated by Supreme Court

The North and the South lived two totally different ways of life, leading to an inevitable conflict between these two sections. Sectionalism in the United States was started and continued because of the different views of living according to the North and the South. Economically, politically, and socially the North and the South clashed with opposing opinions of each other. The North and the South had opposing ways of how to handle their business.

The Mexican War Mexico has been threw several wars but the one that might be most remembered is the war between Mexico and America. This was an important war because America was trying to take Mexico's land. There were several problems such as California and slavery, America's victories, and the treaties of peace. Mexico has passed the boundary of the United States, has invaded our territory and shed American blood upon American soil. War exists, and, notwithstanding all our efforts to avoid it

The 1800's were a tumultuous time for the United States of America. At that time the south was typically slave and the northerners were traditionally for freedom. The slave states of the south and the abolitionist in the north were quarreling and the government recognizing that made efforts to stop or delay the civil war. In 1819 Missouri wanted to enter the Union a slave state. At this time the 22 states of the Union were divided evenly 11 slave and 11 free. Northern states were afraid that if

a military conflict between the United States of America (the Union) and the Confederate States of America (the Confederacy) from 1861 to 1865. The American Civil War is sometimes called the War Between the States, the War of Rebellion, or the War for Southern Independence. It began on April 12, 1861, when Confederate General P. G. T. Beauregard opened fire on Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina, and lasted until May 26, 1865, when the last Confederate army surrendered. The war too

Essay #3 One of the bitterest fruits of westward expansion was the intensification of the slavery extension issue. I support this statement. Westward expansion intensified the slavery extension issue like nothing else could have. It all began simply enough in 1787 when the Ordinance of 1787, better known as the Northwest Ordinance, was passed. The bill structured a government for the west by setting up a governor, secretary and three judges to establish and maintain order. The bill also stated

Although some historians feel that the Civil War was a result of political blunders and that the issue of slavery did not cause the conflict, this interpretation fails to consider the two main causes of the war itself: the expansion of slavery, and its entrance into the political scene.

The Civil War was one of our nation’s greatest and saddest events. Many elements came into play in causing the war.

Slavery was not the only problem, everything dealing with the expansion of our western borders. In the 1830’s, Texas was still within Mexican borders. Eager for econ

Many peoples have contributed to the development of the United States of America, a vast nation that arose from a scattering of British colonial outposts in the New World. The first humans to inhabit the North American continent were migrants from northeast Asia who established settlements in North America as early as 8000 BC and possibly much earlier (see NORTH AMERICAN ARCHAEOLOGY). By about AD 1500 the native peoples of the areas north of the Rio Grande had developed a variety of different c

The North’s aggression to control the South had led to the point where it was intolerable. The issue on slavery was one of the cause of the Civil War. Slavery and slave trades had beco
