Transcript: Sherman's March is the name given to the traveling of Maj. Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman out of the captured city of Atlanta, Georgia. Sherman and his men wreaked havoc among the crop filled Southern lands. They burned farms, destroyed houses, killed livestock, and used the principle of scorched land to dominate the Southern ability to retaliate. Sherman and Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant believed that the only way the South would completely lose the war was if they lost all resources and had no ability to wage war. The March ruined the South and ultimately made them altogether inadequate to hold any kind of reprisal against the Union. Uncle Tom's Cabin Battle of Appomattox Lincoln - Douglas Debates Election of Abraham Lincoln's_raid_on_Harpers_Ferry#The_raid California Gold Rush After the Lincoln - Douglas debates, Abraham Lincoln was a highly respected politician and nationally known across America. After long campaigning and winning the Republican Convention in Chicago, Lincoln was on his way to become president. Lincoln did very little campaigning on his own and rarely held speeches; the Republican party did most of that kind of work for him. The Republican party focused mostly on Lincoln's childhood, the poverty he was faced with, and the hard labor he had done when campaigning . When the Presidential election took place on November 6, Lincoln had only won 40 percent of the popular vote, but had dominated the electoral college votes. The election of Abraham Lincoln, a fully anti-slavery man, exasperated the South and most definitely led to the Civil War. Battle of Gettysburg April 25, 1846 – February 2, 1848 Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant and his army trapped a Confederate army lead by Lt. Gen. John Pemberton after prolonged siege operations. After continued attacking, Vicksburg surrendered to the Union.

The Northern Union army was lead by Brig. Gen. Irvin McDowell and the Southern Confederate army was lead by Brig. Gen. P. G. T. Beauregard, both armies were inexperienced and not prepared for the battle that was about take place. After hours of confused fighting, the Confederacy had won the battle. It was the bloodiest battle to have taken place at that time. Although victorious, the Confederate army was too dismembered and unorganized to continue fighting against the Union. This battle brought the fact that the Civil War would not be a small rebellion to light. The Confederacy did not celebrate their victory, for they knew that things were going to get serious; this was just the beginning of the battles to come. Kansas - Nebraska Act May 18 – July 4, 1863 March 6 1857 This act, set in place by Stephen A. Douglas of Illinois repealed the Missouri Compromise, a compromise that outlawed slavery above the 36 degrees 30 minutes latitude in Louisiana and created the two new territories of Nebraska and Kansas. The issue of slavery was resurfaced when these two new territories were brought into the picture. Douglas proposed the idea of popular sovereignty to let the states vote on whether they would be a slave state or not.
