Bull Run Missouri Compromise Lincoln Assassination Emancipation Proclamation Civil War Amendments 13, 14, 15 Written in 1787, the
Constitution was our new form government; it replaced the Articles of
Confederation. In it there is an amendment that says the Constitution could not be amended until 1808, and slavery had to exist until at least 1808. The Missouri Compromise
is a compromise that allowed
Missouri to become a slave state if Maine became a free state. The 1860 Election was the Presidential election
that President Lincoln won. He beat out Democrat
candidate Stephen Douglas, and two others for
President. He was able to win because the Democrats
were spilt between 3 candidates. Lincoln didn't
support slavery, Douglas did. Fort Sumter was where the first battle of the Civil War took place. After South Carolina suceeded the U.S. they demanded for U.S. troops to leave Fort Sumter. The U.S. refused and the first shots of the Civil War were fired. After Fort Sumter, 7 other states
declared their secessions as well.
Together they formed the Confederacy
to keep slavery in our nation and fought
agains the Union in the Civil War. The first battle of the Civil War
that actually caused people to be
aware of our Civil War and to care.

the head while he was in Ford's
Theater,by John Wilkes Booth. Lincoln

after the Civil War. The 13th Amendment abolishes slavery, the
14th Amendment includes Equal Protection, Due Process, and
Privileges and Immunities Clauses, and the 15th Amendment
makes sure that every man has the right to vote. This compromise was written to allow another Republican become
THe new POTUS instead of a Democrat, if a democrat was put into the
