BELLWORK
  • Read The Union and the Confederacy Compared on
    page 173 and answer the following questions
  • Why was the North able to raise a much larger
    army than the South?
  • How did the Confederacy have an advantage over
    the North?
  • How did the North have an advantage over the
    South?
  • How did the Confederacy fight?

2
The Civil War
  • The Civil War (1861-1865) took more American
    lives than any other war in history. It so
    divided the people of the United States that in
    some families brother fought against brother. The
    Civil War was between the Southern States, trying
    to preserve slavery and an agricultural way of
    life, and the Northern States, dedicated to a
    more modern way of life and to ending the
    expansion-and, later, the existence-of slavery.
    The terrible bloodshed left a heritage of grief
    and bitterness that declined only slowly and,
    even today, has not fully disappeared.

Lincolns Goals
  • My paramount object in this struggle is to save
    the Union, and is not either to save or to
    destroy slavery. If I could save the Union
    without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I
    could save it by freeing all the slaves I would
    do it and if I could save it by freeing some and
    leaving others alone I would also do that.
    (Lincoln's Letter to Horace Greeley)

    questions on the note card.
  • Once everyone is finished, we will put the events
    in order as a class and complete the worksheet.
