Kansas-Nebraska Act 1854
  • Opened territories of Kansas and Nebraska to U.S.

Bleeding Kansas Failure of Popular Sovereignty
  • Because Kansas would decide about slavery through
    popular sovereignty, both the North (antislavery)
    and the South (pro-slavery) sent thousands of
    people into Kansas to sway the vote
  • Tensions between the two groups led to violence
    and the destruction of property, including the
    sacking of Lawrence
  • By the end of 1856,
  • 200 people had
  • been killed in the

    pragmatic approach to Reconstruction, in which he
    sought to avoid harsh treatment of the defeated
    South by reminding his listeners of how wrong
    both sides had been in imagining what lay before
    them when the war began four years earlier.
  • Lincoln balanced that rejection of triumphalism,
    however, with a recognition of the unmistakable
    evil of slavery, which he described in the most
    concrete terms possible
  • Unbeknownst to him, John Wilkes Booth, David
    Herold, George Atzerodt, Lewis Paine, John
    Surratt and Edmund Spangler, a few of the
    conspirators involved with his assassination were

    not to be imprisoned unless charged with a crime

    effort to stop anyone from supporting the
    Confederate cause and to prevent those who
    encouraged others to resist the draft
  • The suspension of habeas corpus was the result
    of draft riots in many
  • northern cities

    Union victory at Antietam to issue the
    Emancipation Proclamation in September 1862.

    the liberation of slaves
