Anne Marly Tondereau
I strongly believe that the civil war has a lot to with slavery. The whole chaos must had been about a disagreement and somehow someone or a group of people broke it. I think it also had something to do with agriculture and different class levels. By that I mean that the North had industries and companies while the south only had farms and few little churches. For the time being no one can really tell what caused the civil war but I’m going to be working on this case day and night to figure out who was behind al this.
Today s investigation proved absolutely nothing. I learned the differences and the similarities between the north and the south but none of the evidence I looked at proved any suspect that might’ve cause the civil war. All the evidence proved that the North was more advance in everything more than the south was. The north had factories, industries, schools and good transportations. While, the majority of the south’s population were slaves with no education opportunities, with few churches , and transportations such as railroads and steam boats.
In today’s investigation, I’ve found my first suspect and it’s congress. I’m suspicious of this person because ever since congress made an unspoken agreement about keeping the number the number of slaves states and free states equal, no one has been getting along. The south believed that this decision should belong to the people. Someone name Thomas Jefferson is worried that this whole thing is going to create hatred among both groups. As an FBI agent I strongly think that congress has a lot to do with the civil war.
In today’s investigation, my second suspect is a guy name Henry Clay. I’m very suspicions of him because he wanted slavery to end and a lot of people from the north didn’t like how he had a say in things and how congress was actually agreeing with him. I like how he was trying to end slavery but he was trying to hard and he took way too many big steps in the process. Like the speech he gave about if they don’t end slavery the north and the south will end up fighting each other. Henry Clay could be the reason of the civil war.
Today’s investigation proved that the Kansas and Nebraska act is another one of the suspect of the civil war. The act extended slavery and it even caused a fight inside the senate. A lot of people wanted slavery to end so by passing the act to extend slavery, a lot of people got really angry. While some people in the north believed that there were bigger problems going on instead of slavery. Bigger things such as new territories should be use for home of the white people. At this point there’s nothing that no one can do ’o prevent the civil war from happening.

Today’s investigation proved very interesting. Someone finally stood up against slavery. Even if he failed but he always stayed honest and confident in what he believed in in which case was for slavery to end. However, even though he was the big hero of the year for the southerners, he could be the reason for the civil war. He tried to free the slaves and arm them at the same time. He took a very big risk and this could have cause the civil war.
