How did Lincoln’s election lead to secession?
5. Discuss the Civil War. How did Lincoln’s election lead to secession? you should be able to tell me the major people involved and the way the North and South were prosecuting the war. You should mention some key battles that were turning points, like Antietam, Vicksburg, the fall of Atlanta. You need to discuss the issue of slavery in the war, so you need to cover the emancipation proclamation and how slavery was the cause of the war. What was the opposition to the war in the North? ( draft riots, Copperheads etc.) Why did the North win? Why did the South lose?
