Transcript of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address

Lincoln's Gettysburg Address The North's economy is based primarily on buisness and industries. Their geography is well wooded, rocky, and has a lot of water. The North is urban, and holds "free" blacks and whites. A problem though is that they use slave products and inports for their industries... hypocrasy? The south in the mid 1850's was predominantly
flat and swampy with rich soil and only 2 seasons!
This made for a great growing season. Hence, their
main income was farm produce, primarily cotton.
The crop owners became very wealthy off their crops
because of slave labor. The invention of the cotton gin
made the owners even more money for the owners.
The cotton gin separated seed from cotton making
that job a lot faster which made the owners plant
more cotton! There were many causes to the Civil War. One major reason was slavery and everything about it. The economic value it brought the south was a big pusher
for the civil war! Another reason was the fact congress allowed slaves to be brought to any state ( free or not ), or even a territory and still be used.
I believe the fact that slaves were able to be taken from the south and taken anywhere in the United States, or even the un-organized territories and still be used was the most important for the civil war. I also believe it was very unfair treatment on the slaves, and it had to be stopped. After the war many things allowed slave's to be closer
to freedom. All of the Southern states rejoined the Union
after they all wrote a new constitution which ratified the
13th Amendment; "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
The 14th amendment also came into play to counter the Dred Scott v. Sandford case. The 14th amendment states that states can not deprive any person of their right to life, liberty and property without any fairness. I believe the main factor towards
the victory was the "Git-r-done"
attitude of General Grant. A good
attitude with strong tactics wore
off on his soldiers and influenced
the victory! The Gettysburg Address was a speech given
by president Lincoln 4 months after the
Battle of Gettysburg. It took place November 19, 1863 at the National Cemetary
in Gettysburg Pennsylvania. Because the south was pro-slavery their tensions
were tight with the north and their
differences later led to the Civil War. "civil war
a war between political factions or regions within the same country."

The Civil War was a war of a separating nation
with each section having different laws and beliefs,
territories and geography, and incomes and jobs. American Civil War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia." Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. N.p., n.d. Web. 30 May 2011. <>.

point of the war. It was a battle of great fatalities for
both North and South.

The north:
3,155 killed
14,531 injured
5,369 captured or missing

The South:
4,708 killed
12,693 injured
5,830 captured of missing After the war and during the Reconstruction Era
brought African Americans some freedom, it also
left many opportunites for them to be segragated.
These opportunites were quickly used. The
Jim Crow Laws were a big contributer to their
lack of real freedom. However, the re-written
constitution which ratified the 13th and 14th
amendments allowing all citizens to be able to vote,
and to allow anyone to become citizens. It also
prohibited slavery! Sadly, segragation laws held strong
for almost 100 more years! Made by Kyle Fite

Mr.Livengood's History Class The 15th amendment states that no U.S government can deny a citizen the right to vote no matter what their race, color, etc.
The Jim Crow Laws were laws put in to segragate blacks from whites in everyday situations. Nurses could work on black patients, blacks must use separate bus stations, and many many many more useless and rude laws.
All of these laws were laws that kept blacks from equal treatment, and they kept this way more almost 100 more years.
