The. War. between. t he. states. Game. Part 1. Fed up with the North, South Carolina seceded from the Union on Dec. 20, 1860. Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas succeeded. __________ states succeeded before Lincoln was inaugurated. Later, Dude!!. 7.
I ruled in the Dred Scot Case.
I said slaves were property and had no rights.
South Carolina is not in the USA anymore, so the fort is ours.
Get out or else!!!
A fort is federal property…therefore, it is ours
I cannot just let them go, but I don’t want to fight them.
An important message came from Major Robert Anderson commander at Fort Sumter.
Supplies at the Fort are almost gone. If new supplies are not sent soon, we will be forced to surrender the fort to the Confederacy.
We need to take over the fort BEFORE the supplies get there. We will ask them to surrender first, though.
Alright then, you asked for it!!!

Dear Cousin Andy,
I hope thiz letter finds you good. I know you done decided to move up par to Kentucky to fight with the Union just in case there is a war once you done heard South Carolina seceded. I just wanted to give you news of what is happenin with your kin folk. I know you and Couz Erin hate to see the nation plum cut in two. Most of yer East Tennessee brothers feel the way you do. I shore do hate to be the one to inform you, but Tennessee done decided today to secede the Union and join the Confederacy. It is a sad day for us here in Oneida. Our own US Senator from Tennessee, Andrew Johnson is opposed to secession, but no one listened to him. He said that Tennesseans are committin treason!!!
After Tennessee was the last state to secede, Scott County even said they wanted to break away from Tennessee and form their own state!!! I can’t believe it has come to this.
I am not sure what I will do fight for my home state or go with my feller citizens of the county. I will tell you what I decide later. I will make sure Erin and your younguns are all save and sound. Maybe there will not be a war. If there is, hopefully it will be a quick war.
Your dearest cousin,
June 7th, 1861
Yippee, Tennessee done gone and left the Union yesterde. I am plum proud of my feller statesmen. I wished I were old enuff to join up but I am not near old enuf. I am jealous of you big bro. you get to be makin history wile im just stuck here tendin the pigs. Christine is just wailin all day becuz her betrothed Gil done gone and signed up fir the confederacy. She is so upset that her beloved mite git hurt that she is just beside herself. Women?? Now that the csa has elevem states we will whip those blue bellies from here to kingdom come. One southern boy can whip ten Yanks. Christine don’t got nothin to worry bout. Tennesse had the right to leave the union. Mom read the paper and it said that wezleavincuz of slaves. Aint that a bunch of hogwash. We aint never had no slaves. Wezfightin for southern honor. Aint no yank gonna tell us how to live or how to vote. After ole ape Lincoln got in office I knew we were in for a fight. Then when those yellow bellied yanks wouldn’t leave fort sumter I new that it was only a matter of time.
I wish I could be long side of you. I know that betwitk us we would win the war in days.
Hope to see you soon,
