Civil War Perspectives of the North and South
A major issue between the Northern and Southern colonies of the United States after the newly formed U.S Constitution of 1787 was the dispute over free states and
slavery states. The constant battle of whether to keep slavery to produce monetary gain of the Southern States versus the industrial movement of the Northern States
created crises among federal and state political positions as well as citizens from both sides for nearly 80 years: ultimately leading to what we know as the Civil War
In this final assignment, you will research and explain the causes of the Civil War of 1861–1865 from the perspectives of a political figure from the North and of
the South. It is understood that the political figures you select will give their side and blame the other side’s fault for initiating the war, however, I need you to
explain specific facts that led to their view by articulating the events they are referring to by name and dates: of course summarizing the events to support the views
of both political figures will be the key in this assignment.
Once you have fully explained the views of both sides, you will explain your perspective on where you feel the South failed to win the war against the North
(ultimately surrendering) and what was the pinnacle event (s) that created the strength for the North to succeed in the Civil War. Again, simply stating your opinion
is part of the answer, but will be wrong if you do not support it with articulation from historic events, as well from the information you received from the research
of your two political figures in part one of this assignment: thus giving a balanced opinion in what “you” felt was the reasons for the failure and success of the
North and South.
