DBQ Civil War
Many people can argue that the main cause of the Civil War was the Kansas-Nebraska Act, The Missouri Compromise, Economic,social , or even the Compromise of 1850. There are an abundant amount of reasons that people can argue how the Civil War started. Anyways the cause of the war is political reason and .
First of all, the State Government especially the south state thought they weren't getting all their rights and that the Federal government was too over controller.Also the north wanted the new state in west to be free state. The south didn’t want that to happen because that would mean more anti slavery as representatives which would lead the end of slavery . They thought their power was too was weak and unfair. Abraham Lincoln won the Election of 1860 without their supported.
On a conventional meeting, A Southern politician attacked a Northern,when he spoke negative tone about him. Both group were supporting their man. I can only infer both group were willing to do more for their man and we can already see the separation among them . Few weeks later, a group of northern attacked southern politics which demonstrate again both parties and their supporters were willing to do anything for their fellows.
Dred Scott an African-American who unsuccessfully sued for his freedom..The Supreme Court decided if Scott should be free or not, although he and his wife Harriet Scott were slaves, they had lived with his master Dr. John Emerson in states and territories where slavery was illegal according to both state laws and the Northwest Ordinance of 1787. The United States Supreme Court decided 7–2 against Scott, finding that neither he nor any other person of African ancestry could claim citizenship in the United and therefore Scott could not bring suit in federal court under diversity of citizenship rules.
Lastly, another political reason. John Brown was killed after been captured because him and his group killed many pro slaveries believers. He believed armed insurrection was the only way to overthrow the institution of slavery in the United States.Unlike most other Northerners, who advocated peaceful resistance to the pro-slavery faction, Brown believed that peaceful resistance was shown to be ineffective and that the only way to defeat the oppressive system of slavery was through violent insurrection. He believed he was the instrument of God's wrath inpunishing men for the sin of owning slaves.
As many reason that cause the war. Political reason seems the main cause of the war. Politicians fought during meeting, yelled at each other, degree and couldn't compromise at anything. Their supports whom did anything for their leaders revenge for them if it was necessary which build on and on which lead the to the war.
