States Rights Presentation
Transcript of States Rights Presentation
The rights and powers held by individual US states rather than by the federal government
States rights had a big effect on South Carolina. They wanted to secede from the U.S. because of States Rights. They wanted to have slavery but the U.S. government did not want them to have slavery.
This act connects to the Civil War by making 2 new territories. These 2 new territories got to choose if they wanted to have slaves ar not. It was their choice.
The connection to the Civil war was that each state had their own choices and power. A big part of it was having slavery and the power to choose if you wanted to have it or if you didnt want to have it.
