Nc goal #2 and 3 causes to the civil war

  1. 1. The Civil War Band-Aid There were forces pulling the North and South apart and many attempts to try to fix these issues. But as time progressed it became clear the rift between the two regions could not be mended.
  2. 2. There were several things wounding the relationship between the North and the South <ul><li>Tariffs: favored the North by protecting their manufactured goods </li></ul><ul><li>Slavery: favored in the South due to their Agricultural economy </li></ul><ul><li>Land Disputes: South wanted to continue to move West to expand </li></ul><ul><li>Cotton production on good soil. The North did not want the competition </li></ul><ul><li>Nullification: Struggle between state and federal government </li></ul>
  3. 4. MANY COMPROMISES WERE MADE TO TRY AND COVER THE WOUND BETWEEN THE TWO SIDES THE BAND-AIDS: <ul><li>~ Assumption Act- Capital moved from NY to DC. All Revolutionary War debts were paid by the Federal gov’t </li></ul><ul><li>~ Missouri Compromise~ 1820 Missouri came in as a slave state and Maine was free. Set 36’30 line. </li></ul><ul><li>~ Compromise of 1850~ California came in as a free state. Territories could vote for free/slave. Stricter Fugitive Slave law </li></ul><ul><li>~ Texas in as free or slave? </li></ul><ul><li>~ Kansas-Nebraska Act — supported using popular sovereignty to decide whether a state would be free or slave </li></ul>
  4. 5. Despite the many efforts to fix the problems between the North and the South many forces kept ripping off the band-aids exposing the gap between the two. <ul><li>Uncle Tom’s Cabin-angered the North for its harsh depiction of slavery </li></ul><ul><li>~Dred Scott Case-angered the North-said slaves property-meant slavery was allowed in any state. </li></ul><ul><li>~John Brown’s Raid—Scared the South that Abolitionists were going to join with slaves and revolt. </li></ul><ul><li>~Bleeding Kansas—preview of the violence that would come to the US </li></ul>
