Founded newspaper: Mystery Supported colonization in Liberia Harriet Tubman Former slave Conductor on the Underground Railroad Antislavery Movement: Divisions Participation of Women Allowed Sarah & Angelina Grimke Sojourner Truth Race

African Americans need was urgent Believed whites saw them as inferior Tacticsb Antislavery Movement: Resistance North South Abolition was a radical idea Merchants : worried it would sour business between N & S White workers & labor leaders: competition would lower wages Blacks seen as inferior People dont want them living in

their neighborhoods Southerners: outraged & defended slavery Postmasters refused to deliver abolitionist literature Southern congressmen: Gag Rule passed The Underground Railroad 40,000 100,000 slaves escaped using the Underground Railroad Wanted: Harriett Tubman AKA: Black Moses $40,000 Reward

Calhoons Address to the Senate I have, Senators, believed from the first that the subject of slavery would, if not prevented by some timely & effective measure, end in disunion [of the United States] It has reached a point when it can no longer be disguised or denied that the Union is in danger. You have thus had forced upon you the greatest & the gravest question that can ever come under your consideration: How can the Union be preserved? ~John C. Calhoon March 4, 1850 Missouri Compromise of 1820

Review: Set 3630 line Provided balance in the Senate War With Mexico Motives Manifest destiny Obtain California from Mexico Racism: Mexicans considered semi-Indian Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (1848) US gained California & New Mexico Territory US settled claims with citizens against Mexico ($3.2 million) US paid Mexico $15 million

Mexico Territory South: government had no right denying citizens of their property or preventing them from taking their property to territories North: areas should be closed to slavery while they are still territories; stop the spread of Slave Power Wilmot Proviso & Popular Sovereignty David Wilmot (Penn-D) Amendment

neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall ever exist in any territory gained from Mexico Popular Sovereignty People in the territories decide on the issue of slavery Compromise of 1850 California asks to join as a free state Admission would shift the balance of power in senate Solution:

Come up with another compromise Henry Clay (Kent) wrote compromise John C. Calhoon (S.C.) opposed Daniel Webster (Mass) favored Use your smart phone Find the 5 provisions of the Compromise of 1850. You have 5 minutes!

Compromise: 5 separate laws California admitted as a free state People in New Mexico & Utah territories would decide the issue of slavery 3. Sale of slavery in DC abolished (but not slavery) 4. Texas would give up claims to New Mexico for $10 million 5. Fugitive Slave Act : 1. 2. 2 troubling issues with the Fugitive Slave Act 1. Ambiguity of popular sovereignty S: insisted on not prohibiting slavery

2. during territorial stage N: settlers could bar slavery when they wished Fugitive Slave Act Fugitive Slave Act 1. ALL citizens of US would assist in the return of escaped slaves. 2. Trial by jury denied to escaped slaves.

A Tale of 2 Books Uncle Toms Cabin (1852): Harriet Beecher Stowe Cannibals All (1857): George Fitzhugh Illustrated that slavery was opposed to beliefs many Northerners held (importance of women & ideal family) Simon Legree, slaver owner, everything the North feared & despised Slavery could corrupt anyone Presented a picture of slavery in the South Northerners could believe

Northern industrialists were no better than cannibals Didnt care about workers pay, living conditions & could easily replace workers Slave holders had a vested interest in their slaves Effects of the books Northerners: US could not be a country of Simon Legrees Slavery would ruin the US South: Represented the true spirit of the American Revolution since Revolutionary leaders had slaves

Slave households had order, grace & a sense of liberty Northerners were arrogant & self righteous In a nutshell: made the 2 sides hate each other more Stephen Douglas Senator: Illinois Drafted the Kansas 2 Nebraska Act motivations: 1. Wanted Chicago to benefit from western development

2. Wanted to run for president Kansas Nebraska Act Supported the practice of popular sovereignty Asking the nation to repeal the Missouri Compromise 1820 9 months debate; finally passed Republican Party Members: Northerners who were disgusted with the Kansas-Nebraska Act Dedicated to stopping Slave

Power, the repeal of the Kansas Nebraska Act & the Fugitive Slave Act Political Parties Whigs fell apart after 1850 Know Nothings (1854) Grew out of the issue of Nativism AKA: The American Party Every American & naturalized Protestant citizen throughout the Union, [should] use his utmost exertions to aid the cause by organizing & freeing the country from that monster [Catholicism] which is only waiting to approach to plant its flag of tyranny, persecution, and oppression among us.

The American Party Kansas Immigrant Aid Society: 1200 free soilers to Kansas Proslavery settlers in Missouri went to Kansas to vote illegally 1855: 2 constitutions & capitals Topeka: Antislavery Lecompton: Proslavery 1856: proslavery southerners

Bleeding Kansas John Brown led a group to a proslavery settlement near Pottawatomie Creek Killed 5 men Looting in Lawrence + Pottawatomie Creek = summer of murderous raids known as Bleeding Kansas Bleeding Sumner Senator Charles Sumners speech Crime Against Kansas earned him a beating at the hands of Preston Brooks.

Kansas 1857 Proslavery group writes a constitution: Lecompton Constitution Most in Kansas were anti-slavery Buchanan supported Lecompton Constitution Constitution defeated: Aug. 1858 Kansas remained a territory where slavery was legal Election of 1856 Democrats

Know Nothings Republicans James Buchannan Millard Fillmore John C. Freemont Feared foreigners & Catholics Federal government has the right to restrict slavery; Kansas admitted as a free

state; supported temperance Courted immigrants Supported the Kansas Nebraska Act Support of South & key Northern states Winner Hoped the Supreme Court would deal with the issue of slavery for good Strong Northern support Dred Scott v. Sandford 7:2 decision against Scott

Effects of decision: 1. Slaves did not have rights to sue in court 2. Enslaved people could not win freedom by living in a free territory or state 3. Missouri Compromise was unconstitutional & all territories were open to slavery Lincoln-Douglas Debates (Illinois) Illinois deeply divided over slavery 7 debates on the issue of slavery in the territories Who would YOU vote for? Why? Stephen Douglas (D) White Americans were superior to African Americans Tolerated slavery Supported popular sovereignty

Abraham Lincoln (R) Shared Douglas views regarding African Americans Majority should not have the power to deny a minority of their rights Did not believe the federal government had to power to forbid slavery Slavery was wrong; an issue of A house divided against itself cannotmorals stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave & half free. I do no expect the Union to be dissolved I do not except the house to fall but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other. -Abraham Lincoln June 1858

Gettysburg Address 9/19/1863 2 minute speech 15,000 people gathered to hear Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave

the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. Election 1864 Problems Radical Republicans: angered Lincoln vetoes Wade-Davis Bill Supported John C. Fremont Democrats George McClellan Capture of Atlanta = support for Lincoln = 212 of 233 electoral votes

13th Amendment Ratified December 18, 1865 Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for a crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction Lincoln: slavery once divided a nation, lets begin to heal wounds South Surrenders There is nothing left for me to do but see General Grant and I would rather die a thousand deaths ~R.E. Lee
