The Election Of Lincoln (1860) Why did the election of Lincoln cause succession? Because the south was aware of Lincoln wanting slavery to be banned from the new territories and states. And the south THOUGHT he would abolish slavery in all the current states.
Fort Sumter Fort Sumter was the start of the civil war. As it was conquered/crushed by the south due to Fort Sumter being on Confederate soil.
Emancipation Proclamation (Battle of Antietam) Also, known as the Battle of Sharpsburg. The Union army was following Confederate, Robert E. Lees army into Maryland. Union army General George B. McClellan launched an attack against Lees army. Despite McClellans superiority in numbers, his attempts had failed allowing Lee to counter by shifting his forces along interior lines to meet each and every challenge along the way.
Emancipation Proclamation (The Document) It declared the freedom of all slaves in any state of the Confederate States of America that did not return to Union control by Jan. 1 st 1863.
Battle of Gettysburg The turning point in the civil war. Fought in and around Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The union wins! At the end Lincoln gave a famous 2-3 minute speech known as the Gettysburg Address.
Gettysburg Address Written by Abe Lincoln ripped off of many speeches before. It was about 2-3 minutes long and talking mainly about the Battle of Gettysburg. He wrote it on a train.
Appomattox Robert E Lee (Confederate forces) surrendered to Ulysses Grant (Union forces) finally after passing letters between the two leaders and decided where to meet to discuss agreements.
Civil War Amendments : 13 th, 14 th, 15 th The 13 th Amendment officially abolished slavery and continues to prohibit slavery today. It was added to the constitution on December 6 th, 1865. The 14 th Amendment provided ALL people born in the united states life, life, and property without due process. The 15 th Amendment prohibits any government official from denying a voter based on race, color, or previous servitude.
Lincolns view of Reconstruction Lincoln wanted to readmit the south instead of punishing them for seceding.
Andrew Johnsons view of Reconstruction Andrew Johnsons approach to reconstruction, was a bit different from Lincolns, as he wanted all rebellions to pay for seceding for the union.
Radical Republican view of Reconstruction They established harsh policies toward slavery and confederacy during the civil war. They liked Andrew Johnsons approach to reconstruction at first.
The South after the War When the war ended all was still not well in the south as former slaves were treated differently then regular people. Meanwhile, places had to be rebuilt as they were destroyed during the civil war.
The North and Midwest after the war Booming with industries! Not much rebuilding up north because the war was mostly fought in the south.
Election of 1876 One of the tightest, disputed, and most intense elections of all time. Democrats and Republicans started making a deal in secret, this deal was known as the Compromise of 1877. This deal would make Hayes president of the United States. Hayes Tilden
Compromise of 1877 Democrats agreed to make Rutherford Hayes president if the republicans agreed to the following: To withdraw federal soldiers from their remaining positions in the South To enact federal legislation that would spur industrialization in the South. To appoint Democrats to patronage positions in the South. To appoint a Democrat to the Presidents Cabinet.. To the slaves in the south this deal was known to them as The Great Betrayal. Republican efforts to assure civil right to blacks had been abandoned.
Jim Crow Era Jim Crow era began from segregation (or what the north called equality). Every bathroom, restaurant, shop, library, and any other place to go besides home had a Whites Only or Color Only. Racism began with the Jim Crow Era. Fights would break out, names would be called, hate would rise.
Plessy v. Ferguson On June 7 th, 1892 Homer Plessy got on a white car but was rejected even though he was 7/8 white and 1/8 black. He was told to go get onto the color car but he refused to leave the white car and was later arrested and put in jail. He went to court but was rejected again and again and brought his case all the way up to the United States Supreme Court. Plessy was turned down by the Supreme Court by hearing that the court thought Louisiana did not violate any of the amendments.
