Civil War ABC Book By:Qhira Bonds A Antebellum The Antebellum period is known as the time before the civil war. During this period of time there were plantations in the South, and in these plantations rich whites worked slaves. The North didn't believe in slavery and that was one of the reasons that caused the civil war. B Battle of Bull Run This battle was also known as the Battle of Manassas. This
battle took place on July 21st, 1861 in Manassas,Virginia.
Its significance in the war was that it was the first major war
of the Civil war and it was when the U.S.A realized the war was for real. C D E Davis, Jefferson Emancipation Proclamation Jefferson Davis was born on June 3rd, 1808. He was an American statesman and was the president of the Confederate States of America for its full history. Davis made many decisions for the South during the war and on March 13, 1865, signed the Negro Soldier Law. This law allowed black slaves to enlist in the army. Once Jefferson knew the war was almost over he left Richmond and moved to Virginia to avoid capture. He was then eventually captured near Irwinville, Georgia. F G M The End Battle of Gettysburg H I J K L N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z Yankee Battle of Vicksburg Jackson, Stonewall Lincoln, Abraham Cavada, Federico Federico Cavada lived from the years 1831-1871. He was an officer
for the Union army and because of his artistic talent was assigned to the hot air balloon unit. Later, during the battle of Gettysburg, he was promoted to lieutenant Colonial. Def: Period before civil war The emancipation Proclamation was issued on September 22, 1862
by president Abraham Lincoln. He issued this document because he wanted the south the end the war, return to the union, and end 244 years of slavery. This document stated that if the south did not surrender by January 1, 1863, "all slaves in states or districts in rebellion against the United States will be thenceforth and forever free." The south had a choice, and they chose to stand their ground and continue to fight. Farragut, David David Farragut was a Latino immigrant who became the first U.S Navy admiral and was responsible for the successful blockade of the South. when the Civil war first started, Farragut reluctantly left his friends and family in Virginia and moved to New York. When he captured New Orleans after a battle, Lincoln appointed him to rear admiral. After capturing many more port cities, only Mobile Bay remained. In January. 1864, Farragut conducted one of the most daring naval battles in the war. When it was all over, he captured the last port under confederate control. This victory ended the Civil war, making David Farragut a national hero. The Battle of Gettysburg took place July 1-3, 1863 in and around the city of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It was the war with the most casualties and is often described as the wars turning point. The battle of Gettysburg was the last battle on northern soil and resulted in the north winning. Harper's Ferry The raid of Harper's Ferry took place on October 16-18, 1859.
This raid was an attempt by white abolitionist, John Brown, to start an armed slave revolt by seizing a United States arsenal
at Harper's Ferry, Virginia. Brown's raid, accomplished by 21 men in his party, was defeated by a detachment of U.S. marines led
by Robert E. Lee. Industry Both the North and the South had their own type of industry.
For the South, the main industry was agriculture. This included cotton, sugar, tobacco, and rice. For the North , the main industry was manufacturing. This included cotton and woolen textiles, leather goods, pig iron, and firearms. General Thomas Johnathan "Stonewall" Jackson was born on
January 21, 1824. He was a confederate general during the civil war and was one of the best known commanders after General Robert E. Lee. Jackson earned his famous nickname during the first battle of Bull Run. It was given to him when General Bernard Elliot Bee Jr, told his troops to re-form by shouting "There is Jackson standing like a stone wall. Let us determine to die here and we will conquer. Rally behind the Virginians!" Kansas-Nebraska Act In 1854, Stephen Douglas of Illinois brought around the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act. This act created the territories of Kansas and Nebraska and contained a clause on popular sovereignty. This meant that when a territory asked for statehood, the people of a territory could vote on whether they wanted to be a free state or a slave state. The Northerners were upset with this law because it changed the Missouri Compromise. Missouri Compromise Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809. He was the 16th president of the United States During the Civil War. Before being elected president, he served in the Illinois legislatures. During the Civil war he led the Union to victory and ended slavery in America. Lincoln also issued the Emancipation Proclamation. In 1819, the territory of Missouri applied for statehood as a slave state. After a great deal of debate, congress adopted the Missouri Compromise in 1820. Maine entered as a free state and Missouri entered as a slave state. The measure also prohibited slavery north of the southern border of Missouri. That included the Louisiana territory lands west of Missouri. This compromise kept a balance of between the free states and slave states in the Senate and provided a temporary solution to the slavery problem. The Underground Railroad The Underground Railroad was responsible for helping millions of slaves escape to freedom. It was a network of roads, houses, river crossings, boats and wagons, woods and streams that provided a trail of flight. Nisbet, Eugenius Eugenius Nisbet served in the Georgia legislature, the U.S. Congress, and as one of the original justices in the Supreme Court of Georgia. He was also an influential figure in both the secession movement and the Confederate Government during the Civil war. Nisbet was the one who proposed the secession ordinance. Overseer Def: A supervisor of slaves on a plantation. They punish
slaves if they misbehave and they can also be responsible
for finding runaway slaves. Poor Whites Poor whites were the poorest yeoman farmers.
They might have been squatters, day laborers,
or people who went from place to place looking
for jobs, food, and clothes. Poor whites were primarily know as "white trash". Rice Rice was one of the smaller crops grown in the south.
Slaves who worked for rice planters were said to have
the hardest work. They worked long hours on flooded,
swampy fields and were bent over most of the time.
Each was expected to produce four or five barrels
of rice a season. Fort Sumter The battle of Fort Sumter took place on April 12, 1861
in Charleston, South Carolina. It's significance to the war
was that it was the first shot fired of the Civil War. Tubman, Harriet Harriet Tubman was a african-american abolitionist, humanitarian,
and union spy during the Civil war. She was born a slave and when she escaped she made more that 13 trips back to rescue more than 70 slaves using the Underground Railroad. She later helped
John brown recruit slaves for his attack on Harper's Ferry. The Battle of Vicksburg took place July 1-3, 1863 in Mississippi. The same time as the Battle of Gettysburg. The significance of this battle was that if Vicksburg fell than the South would lose control of the Mississippi river. The North won and and gained control of the river. This cut the south in half. Xenophobia Xenophobia is when people hate or are afraid of another race.
This term has a lot to do with slavery. Which is one of the
leading causes of the Civil war. Yankee was a term used for Union during the civil
war. Back then it would have been seen as a
derogatory term, but in present time it is seen more
as a playful term. Zouaves The original Zouaves were native North African
troops serving in the french army. They traveled
all over and eventually came to the U.S.. The U.S
armies liked the desing and eventually adopted it.

very baggy pants, a vest, a short jacket, and a
vest. They also wore tights. Whigs The Whigs were one of the major political parties in
Georgia during the Antebellum period. They were mostly
members of the upper social classes and they favored
a moderate protective tariff and federal help for the
south. Quilts Quilts were one of the many products made by the
