American Civil War

Transcript: Humanities Research Task Tensions over slavery - North vs South When - Spring 1861 What - By the time Abraham Lincoln (who was anti-slavery) was elected President, seven Southern states had already seceded from the Union (America) and became the Confederate States. Four more states joined the Confederacy after the first shots of the Civil War were fired. Why did it occur- Because an anti-slavery Republican president was elected (Abraham Lincoln). Who - Abraham Lincoln, the leaders of the seven (at the time) Confederate states. Why it was important - It made the southern slave states want to split off from the North. Connection to next event - These tensions over slavery and also over anger that the North was becoming more economically successful than the South, caused the Southern states to secede. To try to preserve the Union, the North responded by raising an army to reclaim the seceded southern States. Secession of the Confederate States When - In 1861 (before Abraham Lincoln's new government took office . What - Seven American states seceded before Abraham Lincoln was elected, four after the first military attack (by the Confederates on South Carolina). Why did it occur - The Confederacy was afraid that the new laws announced by the Northern Republican Government would infringe on their 'natural' rights of owning slaves. Who - Before: South Carolina, Texas, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana. After: Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee and North Carolina. Why was it important - It was the flashpoint opening of military hostilities Connection to the next event - The North saw the secession of the Southern States as a rebellion and had to crush the rebellion to preserve the Union. Election of Abraham Lincoln When - November 1860 What - Abraham Lincoln was elected as President of the United States of America Why it occurred - Because he was the leader of the Republican Party Who - Abraham Lincoln Why it was important - Abraham Lincoln had campaigned against expanding slavery beyond the states where it already existed Connection to the next event - Abraham Lincoln was partly at fault for the tensions over slavery and states' rights Tensions over states' rights - North vs South When - Started in 1820, escalated in 1840 and came to a head in 1854 WhatThere were several powerbases in the United States in the 1800's; the richer North and north Western States with power based in Washington D.C., and the poorer Southern States. The Southern States resented being told what to do by the wealthier and growing North. Why did it occur - there were many reasons why resentments existed between the North and the South, eg in the South they paid higher tariffs on imports and they paid higher interest rates to borrow from northern banks. Greater population growth in the North gave rise to sectionalism where the Southerrn States lost power to the richer North. However the issue of slavery was the greatest source of conflict between the North and South. Who - Confederate States led by Jefferson Davis, the Republican US government in Washington led by President Lincoln, Why was it important - This prompted the Southern States to wish for their own state laws to preside over Federal laws and to make their own decisions Connection to the next event Attack on Fort Sumter When - April 12-14, 1861 What - In South Carolina, a Confederate State, the Confederacy launched an attack on a garrison of Union men flying the US flag at Fort Sumter Why did it occur - Because a Federal Major moved his force into the fort and tried to get a supply ship sent. The supply ship was seized, along with all other federal property. Who - Major Robert Anderson, South Carolina Why was it important - it was the first major attack in the civil war Connection to next event - Because the emancipation proclamation angered the South even more, making them attack Fort Sumter because there was nothing they could do short of surrendering Emancipation Proclamation When - July 1, 1863 What - Abraham Lincoln passed a law that said all the slaves in the Confederacy were free Why did it occur - Lincoln at first said he would make all slaves free if the Southern states did not return to the Union. When they did not return, he issued the Emancipation Proclamation. Who - Abraham Lincoln, all the slaves in the Confederacy Why was it important - it did not outlaw slavery, but it made ending slavery an explicit goal of the war, along with restoring the Union Connection - Perhaps if this law had not been passed, there may not have been an escalation of hostilities, and there may not have been a battle of Gettysburg Battle of Gettysburg When - July 1 - 3, 1863 What - The Confederate General Robert E Lee had been advancing north, but was finally defeated by the Northern Army at the Battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania. Casualties for both sides add up to between 46,000 to 51,000 men, with up to 28,000 casualties on the Confederate side. Why did it occur - Although
