Section 1 Section 2 appropriate legislaion sent troops in to enforce civil rights Thirteenth Amendment
The Thirteenth Amendment was added to the Constitution in 1865. It made slavery illegal in the United States. Many states passed laws to protect the rights of Blacks, but white people against racial equality, mostly from the South, fought against similar laws when Congress tried to pass them. In addition to the equality issue, some states did not accept the Thirteenth Amendment because they believed freeing the slaves would cause other problems.
Slave owners were used to the slaves’ cheap labor and paying others to do the same work would cost more and lower how much money they made. Some slave owners wanted the government to pay for their freed slaves. Workers in the North wanted Blacks to stay in the South because they were afraid Blacks would take their jobs for less pay and poorer working conditions. Many slaves still could not obtain a good job because of discrimination and the lack of a good education. Blacks still did not have the same Civil Rights as Whites. Amendment 14 "prolouge" "grants broad definition of citezenship to "all persons" everybody (men) are citezens Section 1 "All persons born or naturalized in the united states...are citizens of the united states and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall..abridge the privlages... equal protection of the laws." slaves slaves 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice-President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.
3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

January 1, 1863
President Lincoln read the first draft of this document to his Cabinet members on July 22, 1862. After some changes, he issued the preliminary version on September 22, which specified that the final document would take effect January 1, 1863. Slaves in Confederate states which were not back in the Union by then would be free, but slaves in the Border States were not affected.
The most controversial document in Lincoln's presidency, its signing met with both hostility and jubilation in the North. After the preliminary version was made public, Lincoln noted, "It is six days old, and while commendation in newspapers and by distinguished individuals is all that a vain man could wish, the stocks have declined, and troops come forward more slowly than ever. This, looked soberly in the face, is not very satisfactory." However, on the day he approved the final version, Lincoln remarked, "I never, in my life, felt more certain that I was doing right, than I do in signing this paper."
By the President of the United States of America:
Whereas, on the twentysecond day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty two, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States, containing, among other things, the following, to wit:
"That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.
"That the Executive will, on the first day of January aforesaid, by proclamation, designate the States and parts of States, if any, in which the people thereof, respectively, shall then be in rebellion against the United States; and the fact that any State, or the people thereof, shall on that day be, in good faith, represented in the Congress of the United States by members chosen thereto at elections wherein a majority of the qualified voters of such State shall have participated, shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be deemed conclusive evidence that such State, and the people thereof, are not then in rebellion against the United States."
Now, therefore I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, by virtue of the power in me vested as Commander-in-Chief, of the Army and Navy of the United States in time of actual armed rebellion against the authority and government of the United States, and as a fit and necessary war measure for suppressing said rebellion, do, on this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty three, and in accordance with my purpose so to do publicly proclaimed for the full period of one hundred days, from the day first above mentioned, order and designate as the States and parts of States wherein the people thereof respectively, are this day in rebellion against the United States, the following, to wit:
Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, (except the Parishes of St. Bernard, Plaquemines, Jefferson, St. Johns, St. Charles, St. James Ascension, Assumption, Terrebonne, Lafourche, St. Mary, St. Martin, and Orleans, including the City of New Orleans) Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South-Carolina, North-Carolina, and Virginia, (except the fortyeight counties designated as West Virginia, and also the counties of Berkley, Accomac, Northampton, Elizabeth-City, York, Princess Ann, and Norfolk, including the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth[)], and which excepted parts, are for the present, left precisely as if this proclamation were not issued.
And by virtue of the power, and for the purpose aforesaid, I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves within said designated States, and parts of States, are, and henceforward shall be free; and that the Executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authorities thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons.
And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary self-defence; and I recommend to them that, in all cases when allowed, they labor faithfully for reasonable wages.
And I further declare and make known, that such persons of suitable condition, will be received into the armed service of the United States to garrison forts, positions, stations, and other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service.
And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, upon military necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington, this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the eighty-seventh.
By the President: ABRAHAM LINCOLN
WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State. "declare... that such persons of suitable condition, will be received into the armed service of the United States to grrison forts positions, stations, and other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service." freedom and fight for north 1860 election Abraham Lincoln
ran for senate and lost
but he won the presidential campaign only by 40% because the republicans had 3 candidates
most of the southern states didn't even have lincoln on their ballot
lincoln entered office and promised not to change slavery in the south because he wanted to keep the country together
he wouldn't allow slavery to expand
shortly after lincoln won south carolina seceded from the United States Abraham Lincoln - 16th U.S. president; his Republican roots and association with abolitionism prompted South Carolina to secede in 1861 THE DEMOCRATS WERE DIVIDED Fort Sumter Compromise of 1877 Bull run 6 main events
(may be repeated from earlier) informal, unwritten deal that settled the disputed 1876 U.S. Presidential election and ended Congressional Reconstruction. The compromise essentially stated that Southern Democrats would acknowledge Hayes as President, but only if the Republicans acceded to various demands:
1. The removal of all Federal troops from the former Confederate States.
2.The appointment of at least one Southern Democrat to Hayes' cabinet.
3.The construction of another transcontinental railroad using the Texas and Pacific in the South
4.Legislation to help industrialize the South. also known as the First Battle of Manassas Just months after the start of the war at Fort Sumter, the Northern public clamored for a march against the Confederate capital of Richmond, Virginia, which could bring an early end to the war. Aftermath Union casualties were 460 killed, 1,124 wounded, and 1,312 missing or captured; Confederate casualties were 387 killed, 1,582 wounded, and 13 missing. Among the latter was Col. Francis S. Bartow, who was the first Confederate brigade commander to be killed in the Civil War. General Bee was mortally wounded and died the following day.
Union forces and civilians alike feared that Confederate forces would advance on Washington, D.C., with very little standing in their way. On July 24, Prof. Lowe ascended in Enterprise to observe the Confederates moving in and about Manassas Junction and Fairfax and ascertained that there was no evidence of massing Rebel forces, but he was forced to land in enemy territory. It was overnight before he was rescued and could report to headquarters. He reported that his observations "restored confidence" to the Union commanders. "On the morning of July 21, ... sent ... (about 12,000 men) .... at 2:30 a.m., ... toward Sudley Springs. Tyler's division (about 8,000) marched directly toward the Stone Bridge..... did not begin fording Bull Run until 9:30 a.m. Tyler's men reached the Stone Bridge around 6 a.m." wikipedia

commemorates defining moments in American history
Fort Sumter National Monument has one of the best collections of 19th century seacoast artillery anywhere in the United States.
This was the first battle of the Civil War.
It consisted of a 39 hour shelling of the fort by the Confederates, after which, the Northern troops surrendered.
There were no deaths on either side.
The fort was named after Thomas Sumter.
Fort Sumter is in the shape of a pentagon.
The fort was still being built in 1860.
It was the site of the first shot of the American Civil War. this flag was flown during the battle of fort sumter Lincoln's assasination one of the last major events in the American Civil War took place on Good Friday, April 14, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln was shot while attending a performance of Our American Cousin at Ford's Theater with his wife and two guests.
Lincoln's assassin, actor and Confederate sympathizer John Wilkes Booth, had also plotted with fellow conspirators, Lewis Powell and George Atzerodt, to kill Secretary of State William H. Seward and Vice President Andrew Johnson respectively Although Booth succeeded in killing Lincoln, the larger plot failed. Seward was attacked, but recovered from his wounds, and Johnson's would-be assassin fled Washington, D.C. upon losing his nerve.
Mary Lincoln's and Clara Harris' screams and Rathbone's cries of "Stop that man!" caused the audience to understand that this was not part of the show, and pandemonium broke out in Ford's Theatre. Long Term Effects Short Term Effects Emancitpation Proclimation Lincoln in the war whyy we fight compare and contrast north and south "all persons hels as slaves within any state or seignated part of a state, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the united states, shall be then thencefoward, and FOREVER FREE." some long term effects are

lincoln entered office and promoses not to change slavery in the south; he is trying to keep the country together
but he will not let slavery expand past where it is 1862 nation at wat lincoln has two goals
end war sooner
start ending slavery, so the divided house will no longer be divided we fight because slavery was wrong and we wanted it to stop
also becasue the south wanted slavery to continue longer then the set date that it would continue and the north did not want it to continue North South wanted slavery becasue it brought money to the plantation and it was "free labour" it was justified with a if this happens then this is waht the result will be they not only agreed with slavery but felt they needed it because they didn't want to pay someone to do the work or do it them selves it was definatley free labour beleived that it was necessary and that slaves were property not real human beings needed slavery supported the idea because they needed the stuff that they harvested but didn't support it because the slaves were treated wrong they were strongly agaisnt expansion they used it as well thought it was stupid and pointless as well as unfair to the slaves because they were forced to work hard and didn't really have any other choice they hated slavery and weren't happy with the government because they were letting it continue they were upset overall and thought it was a necessary evil Definitions Compromise of 1877-one of a series of compromises reached to hold the United States together peacefully.
