The North and South . Many People think of the

Civil wars as just another war. Where somebody was

trying to settle some kind of argument . Well it was not,

it was to free men and it proves that no matter what we

are all-equal in some way or another. Many people to

date still question the power of slavery towards the

black race. Many in fact still hold that thought

of being owned but know one deserves to be treated

that way. The North and the south. Who was

considered good and who was ignorant?

The North . The North was known as the Union

against slavery . The North was was known as the

rebels. Abraham Lincoln was the President for the

Northern states (Union). Lincoln came up with some

thing of his own power , his Inaugural address. The
Contents were "Apprehension seems to exist among the

people of the Southern States , that by the accession of

A Republican Administration, their property, and their

peace, and their personal security, are to be endangered.

There is no reasonable cause for such apprehension."
( Civil War Years pg.34 Lincoln's Inaugural address)

The South. Their the ones who made the

Confederacy and who wanted to continue to run slavery

as far into the ground as possible. Many believe in the

words of all who say "Ignorance is bliss, so come

knock the smile off my face" (Zack De Loroacha Rage

Against The Machine.") Those are the much anticipated

Words of hate from which one person thinks when they

hear Civil war. That is pretty bad when still to date the

practices of wrong are still brought up in the 1990's

society. To get back on track with topic the South
stood as the Yankees. ( Civil War Years pg.100)

Jefferson Davis of Mississippi became the President of

the Confederate States of America. Jefferson had served

the Mexican wars.(Civil War ,pg30).

War comes. In the last days of 1860 the majority of

the people of the North refused to believe that the Union

was headed for complete dissolution.(Correspondents of

war, pg28). With in the first Month of the new year

1861 many Southern States followed the lead of South

Carolina. Mississippi naturally by supreme ordinance

of secession declared its self out of the Union on 1-9-

1861. Florida along with the following and proceeding

in the order by date from the ninth of January was

Louisiana, Georgia, and Texas all broke from the

Union. (Civil War pg29) These states along with others
not mentioned formed the Confederate States of

America. On February 9, 1861 the well now known

Confederate Congress choose Jefferson Davis as the

new President for the Confederacy as mentioned earlier

in the report. (Civil Correspondents)

dismissal. McClellan was reinstated and failed to follow

his success at the Battle of Antietam and was dismissed
