The Coming Of Lincoln

How did the Kansas Nebraska Act undue the tradition of compromise that was illustrated with the Missouri Compromise & the Compromise of 1850?

What was the platform of the Republican party? What did they want to remain free?

immigrant aid societies
Immigrant Aid Societies

Bleeding Kansas-

Missouri Border Ruffians (crossed and voted illegally)… passage of pro-slavery laws (gag rules etc.).

Rival capitals established with Lawrence being the free soil capital.

The sack of Lawrence- no deaths just vandalism

Pottawatomie Creek- response to the sack of Lawrence

lecompton constitution
Lecompton Constitution

Pro-slavery groups ramrodded a constitution through despite the majority of citizens not wanting Kansas to become a slave state.

Douglas (Northern Democrats- seen as a traitor to the South) vs. Buchanan (Southerners- doughfaces)

1857 dred scott case
1857 Dred Scott Case

James Buchanan passes the buck to the Supreme Court to make a decision regarding slavery (Chief Justice was close to Buchanan).

Scott- 2 owners. 1st was very lenient and the 2nd dies. Original owners encourage Scott to sue for freedom. Went to free territory to be freed.

At Issue:

Taney…

African Americans can’t use the courts- not citizens (no legal rights).

Scott was a slave when sued in Wisconsin territory. Nullifies the Missouri Compromise

Slaves are property and property may be maintained in all of the territories

Leads to belief that “slave power” dominates all of the Federal government

1858 lincoln douglas debates
1858 Lincoln Douglas Debates

Douglas up for reelection in the Illinois Senate.

Physical contrasts

House Divided Speech- opening shot

Attempts to corner Douglas as though supporting slavery expansion by backing popular sovereignty

Freeport Doctrine- Douglas’s position that slave codes could be outlawed by state legislatures (alienates Southern voters).

Lincoln was painted as an abolitionist who believed in racial equality- rights of their own labor vs the privileges of citizens.
