Why did Lincoln's election in 1860 lead to Civil War in 1861? B.Pringle By 1860 sectional tensions within the Union had reached their peak. Buchanan's presidency saw a major increase in sectional animosity. This was due to events such as the Dred Scott ruling, John Browns raid and the support of the Lecompton Constitution by Buchanan. The raid of John Brown was the exemplification of the aggression in politics of that time. It seemed that by the time of Lincoln's election, peaceful debate was as rare as it was fruitless. Lincoln's election was achieved by purely sectional voting. Lincoln did not win a single southern state. When this is acknowledged, it is not at all surprising that the South immediately considered secession after the newly elected President didn't carry a single state in the more populous half of the country. In southern pro-slavers minds, it was like they were going to have laws against their livelihood forced on them by a foreign power who they didn't vote for but was still supposedly democratically legitimate. The South felt they had no representation in government; although this was not true, the South were represented a lot less then they had ever previously been. This considered, it was not difficult for fire-eaters to stir up anti-Union opinions. The South saw Lincoln's election as the amalgamation of injustices against them and they felt
History essay As a society one can discuss the desire for Individual comfort and profit outweighed humanitarian concerns. Slavery is a phrase that refers to the injustice that has been perpetrated against humanity since the 1600s. Originated in the 1600s, when African slaves were transported to North America. Slaves were then allocated to fields or mines, and others were employed as servants. Many slaves were able to acquire enough money to buy their way out of slavery. Slavery's impact caused lasting devastation, which may still be seen today. Even after slavery was abolished in the United States in the 1800s, racial tensions lingered among the people. The slave owners used the slaves to their advantage profiting off them and put them to use in labour. Building a commercial enterprise out of the wilderness requires a lot of work. For most of the 1600s, the American colonies were primarily agricultural economies supported by economic slavery. As a new industry, the slave auction, was established, more enslaved Africans were taken, and fertility rates increased. These open marketplaces, where captured slaves were examined like animals and purchased and sold to the highest bidder, were an increasingly profitable business. A talented, able-bodied enslaved individual might fetch up to $2,000 by the mid-nineteenth century, though values varied by state. “The bodies of the
How far was President Roosevelt able to solve the Economic problems of the USA by 1941? President Roosevelt developed the New Deal in 1933 and its aims were relief and recovery of the victims of the depression and trying to get the recovery going with reform and regulation. Historians still debate whether for not this was successful and if Roosevelt really did help the economy. There were many business and bank reforms, which consisted of ‘Fireside chats’ and they were there to restore the confidence of the American population. The ‘Fireside chats’ were over the radio and made him seem friendly and caring towards the public, this would have restored the public’s confidence in him; as well as showing them that he was doing something about the depression. Reform of the banks meant that they were not closed immediately they were are to stay open and start to stabilise themselves. The larger the banks in the big cities would lend money to the small banks in the rural areas so they could stay open, Roosevelt did this to help the Economy because it meant more people were able have loans and keep smaller businesses going. On August 23rd 1935 President Roosevelt signed a bill which centralised banking system which allowed the banks to lend under collateral which were now considered as able security. A slight drop occurred in the unemployment sector, this was due to
To what extent was the position of black people improved in the years 1945-55 The position of black people changed to some extent, such as socially things were improved by eradication of segregation in the army by Truman, and also politically through the Brown vs. Blair case, however things that limited the black peoples position during 1945-55 was the deep-seated racism that was in the South and it eventually moving into the North, which was caused through black people now benefiting from the war due to whites having to go fight and jobs being available for them. The social status of black people was improved to a much larger extent compared to the political and economic status. The first real jump up the social ladder was when World War 2 started; blacks and whites fought the same war. When in the barracks, front line and parades they were segregated through law. Black people were not treated the same even though the enlistment for blacks was much higher. The problem blacks realised was that America joined a war initially to solve Nazi racism but soon blacks and whites both caught on to that fact that America are fighting a war where the problem was occurring in their same country. Truman in 1948 issued an order that desegregated the military. Truman issuing this order proved a big win socially for Black people, and this shows that to a fairly large extent that black
How far was peaceful protest responsible for the success of the civil rights movement in the years 1955-1964?
How far was peaceful protest responsible for the success of the civil rights movement in the years 1955-1964? From 1955-1964 the civil rights movement organised a series of campaigns addressing transport, education and the segregation of public places. The civil rights movement rarely called themselves that but simply called themselves ‘the movement’ because it indicated that the goals of the movement were much bigger than civil rights’. Martin Luther King wanted not just the death of legal segregation; he wanted the birth of a ‘beloved community’ in which black and white people were an integral part of one another’s lives. The term implied a journey and a direction and unstoppable momentum. The campaigns included the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955-1956, the Little Rock Campaign of 1957, the Greensboro sit-ins of 1960, the Freedom Rides of 1961, the Albany Movement of 1961-1962 and the James Meredith of the University of Mississippi case of 1962. The Montgomery bus boycott targeted the segregation on buses in the South. This meant that the front rows of the bus were reserved for white people which meant black people had to sit at the back, if the bus was full however, black people were forced to give up their seat for a white person. In 1955 Claudette Colvin demonstrated that there was wide spread support in Montgomery for challenging bus segregation. The
Throughout the decade of 1945 to 1955, most African Americans experienced both de facto and de jure discrimination and segregation in the USA, to a further and more extreme extent in the South. Whilst undoubtedly most African Americans did struggle in day to day life, there were some areas that did improve, for example landmark cases in education where brought about and the nation’s attitude to integrated transport. However, I believe that from 1945 to 1955 there was little progression as there was mostly not much change in the fields of voting, public facilities and employment, which include some of the most vital parts where change was drastically needed. The first area in which change was needed for African Americans was political. Strict voting laws prevented the vast majority of African Americans in the South from voting, as white officials made it difficult and often impossible to register to vote. African Americans were faced with ‘literacy’ tests with impossible questions, the ‘Grandfather clause’, here people only had the right to vote if their grandfather had shared the same right, and an expensive poll tax which many African American families could not afford. Unfair representation was also present as the South, with a high African American population, was represented only by white people, so their views were not properly voiced or taken into account
Jackie Orchard How far do you agree that the Black Power movement hindered Black civil rights in the 1960s? In can be debated that the Black Power movement helped the Black Civil Rights in the year 1960, as it brought greater pride to the blacks in America. However, the change it made was superficial. The movement’s belief in separatism and violence prevented it from gaining any support from the Government, and so resulted in a lack of reform. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed that Black Power was “essentially an emotional concept” that meant “different things to different people.” He feared that the slogan carried “connotations of violence and separatism.” In order to discuss this essay it will cover Malcolm X, the Black Panthers and other aspects that were involved in the Black Power movement. The Black Power movement emerged because of the failing of America. While Johnson’s civil rights legislation made substantial progress to the fight for equality, his actions still failed to impress the majority of poor blacks as their standard of living was still the same. It was a movement propelled by anger and had “been given fuel by incident after incident, disappointment after disappointment, in the drive for civil rights.” Radical blacks were disgusted with the slow pace of reform and felt the need to speed things up and force the issue directly. The anger
To what extent did the Domino Theory cause continued US support for South Korea in the period 1950-1953?
To what extent did the Domino Theory cause continued US support for South Korea in the period 1950-1953? The Domino theory undeniably influenced the USA’s decision to bring continued support for South Korea. Truman, fearing that the Soviet Union intended to "export" communism to other nations, centered his foreign policy on the "containment" of communism. Thus, the Domino Theory, to a considerable extent, had an immediate influence on the USA’s actions in South Korea. However, there were numerous additional factors that led to the continuation of US support in the period 1950-1953. For instance, NCS 68, a report directed to conduct an analysis of Soviet and American military capabilities, recommended heavy increases in military funding to help contain the Soviets. Thus, NSC 68 acted as a practical extension of the Truman Doctrine, and had an unquestionable impact on the US’s continuation of support for South Korea. To a large degree, it could be argued that the Domino Theory was the key motive for continued US support in South Korea. Truman was fearful of the spread of communism – an ideology rapidly expanding and strengthening across Eastern Europe and parts of Asia. In the Far East, Truman felt threatened by the spread of communism, and its appealing qualities to less economically developed countries. After China turned to communist rule in 1949, Truman was wary of
Alex Haugh Honors US History 8B Immigrant Letter Alice, I hope that all is going well back in Sweden, and that you are safe and sound. I’m sorry, that we never formally said goodbye, but life goes on as I know we will meet again someday. Just remember to remain optimistic and pray that you will find employment. Once I have settled down in the United States, I will send food and money to get you through this time of economic turmoil. Though this journey has been long so far, I still have a long ways to go. I have just boarded a train heading to the farmlands of the United States to start a new life as a farmer. The conditions I am faced on the boat were horrendous as I was cramped on a the floor with many other immigrants escaping the turmoil. As I left home, to go to the port, I did not realize how difficult this journey would be until I saw the hundreds of people waiting to enter onto the boat, racing to gain the same freedom I was hoping to see in the distant future. As I entered through the port, many of us were pulled to the side and told that we could only carry a few of our most precious items with us on our journey. Thankfully, I had imagined that this would be the case as I was packing and thus decided it would be necessary to only bring a pen to write this letter, our last picture we took together as we walked in the snow to Christmas eve mass, and
