  • 3. Effects of the civil war <ul><li>The nation was reunited and the southern states were not allowed to secede. </li></ul><ul><li>The South was placed under military rule and divided into military districts. </li></ul><ul><li>The Federal government proved itself supreme over the states. </li></ul><ul><li>Slavery was effectively ended. </li></ul><ul><li>Reconstruction, the plan to rebuild America after the war, began . </li></ul><ul><li>Industrialism began as a result of the increase in wartime production and the development of new technologies . </li></ul>
  • 4. Extra Information on the Civil War page1 <ul><li>In 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected president of the United States. </li></ul><ul><li>He defeated Stephen Douglas because of the greater northern population. </li></ul><ul><li>Southerners were angered by the growing abolitionist movement, and when Lincoln was elected, they feared that their way of life was in jeopardy. </li></ul><ul><li>South Carolina seceded on December 20, 1860. </li></ul><ul><li>Within the next two weeks, six other southern states had left the union (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas). </li></ul><ul><li>Little did people know that a very bloody 4 year war was to come. </li></ul>
  • 5. Extra Info. Cont. page 2 <ul><li>Many things caused the Civil War. </li></ul><ul><li>Not simply the election of Lincoln, but many things that ranged from economical problems to even discrimination of race. </li></ul><ul><li>Other problems in short, consisted of slavery, the abolitionist (people who wanted to stop slavery) movement, difference in economy, and the western expansion. </li></ul><ul><li>In Congress there needed to be a balance of slave and non-slave states so one side couldn&apos;t out vote the other. </li></ul><ul><li>Westward expansion caused some heated debates on whether or not to permit certain territories to become states because of their view on slavery and if slavery was morally right etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of these debates occurred in the early or mid-1800s. </li></ul><ul><li>Most people think that slavery was the only cause of the Civil War . </li></ul><ul><li>Because of slavery, African Americans were discriminated against in the United States. </li></ul>
  • 6. Extra Info Cont. page 3 <ul><li>In reality, southern slaves were often treated better than some northern factory workers. </li></ul><ul><li>Because of the movement to stop slavery (the abolitionist movement) southerners concluded that all or most northerners were against them and wanted to destroy their way of life. </li></ul><ul><li>Southerners developed the illusion that all northerners were against them and it united the southern states. </li></ul><ul><li>For about 245 years, slaves had been used in America as free labor. </li></ul><ul><li>Some slaves tried to escape to freedom, and some accomplished this goal. </li></ul><ul><li>Once an escape was discovered, usually a man hunt followed. </li></ul><ul><li>If caught, slaves were usually beaten or whipped. </li></ul><ul><li>The basis of the southern economy was cotton, so slaves were a very important to southern life. </li></ul><ul><li>Lincoln had said that he would end slavery so the southern population saw him as a threat to their livelihood. </li></ul><ul><li>The northern economy was based on industrial things. </li></ul><ul><li>Textile factories, forges, and general manufacturing are just a few examples of what held up the northern economy. </li></ul><ul><li>Many low paid workers worked in those factories under horrible conditions and in an unsafe environment. </li></ul>
  • 7. Extra Info Cont. page 4 <ul><li>Factory owners recruited the poor, women and children, and immigrants, so they didn&apos;t have to pay the higher wages required for a normal person. </li></ul><ul><li>The southern economy was based on cotton and other agriculture. </li></ul><ul><li>The south used slaves to do manual labor. </li></ul><ul><li>This was viewed as bad by northerners when their own factory workers were no better or even worse off than slaves. </li></ul><ul><li>Southerners didn&apos;t really attempt to stop this when northerners tried to stop slavery. </li></ul><ul><li>Most southerners didn&apos;t even own slaves, they worked the fields themselves. </li></ul><ul><li>Southerners didn&apos;t try to destroy the northern way of life, but northerners did attempt to destroy theirs. </li></ul>
  • 8. <ul><li>THE </li></ul><ul><li>END </li></ul>
