The secession took place primarily because of a long-standing debate concerning </p><p>states rights, and more specifically the issue of slavery. As new territories became states, </p><p>opponents of slavery and advocates of slavery often clashed over whether or not that state </p><p>should allow slavery. After violence broke out in Kansas over the issue, and after Kansas </p><p>entered the Union as a free state, southerners began to believe that the new president, </p><p>Abraham Lincoln would take away their rights to make local decisions and would abolish </p><p>slavery. Henceforth, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, </p><p>Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas broke away from the Union and </p><p>formed the Confederate States of America. Richmond, Virginia was made its capital and </p><p>Jefferson Davis was made president. Kentucky, Maryland, Delaware and Missouri were </p><p>divided on the issue and were declared "border states". On April 14, 1861, Congress </p><p>declared war on the Confederate States of America </p><p>for the purposes of preserving the Union. </p><p> The first shots of the Civil War were fired April 12, 1861 at Fort Sumter, South </p><p>Carolina. Although there we no deaths reported that day, the shots at Fort Sumter signified </p><p>the start of a long, bloody war that would become the most deadly in the history of the </p><p>United States. Many major battles such as Bull Run I and II, Antietam and Shiloh, among </p><p>others, claimed tens of thousands of lives on both sides in 1861 and 1862. Neither the </p><p>Union or the Confederacy had the upper hand. </p><p> The turning point in the war, however, occurred on July 1, 1863, when Confederate </p><p>and Union armies met at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The battle that ensued was one of the </p><p>bloodiest battles in American history. Eventually, Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern </p><p>Virginia was driven away from Pennsylvania by Union general George Meade and his </p><p>Army of the Potomac. The battle did much to cripple the Confederate army. Meanwhile, </p><p>in the western battlegrounds, Union forces under Ulysses S. Grant had gained control of </p><p>the Mississippi River and port of New Orleans which effectively split the Confederacy in </p><p>two. </p><p> Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia was further decimated after Ulysses S. </p><p>Grant was made commander of the Union Army. Grant waged dozens of surprise attacks </p><p>against Lee's army in the wilderness of Virginia in 1864. Although the battles resulted in </p></li><li><p>9 </p><p>the deaths of tens of thousands of soldiers on the Union side, the Confederate Army was at </p><p>the brink of collapse. Meanwhile, Union general William T. Sherman marched through </p><p>Georgia and the Carolinas, destroying everything in his path. The march came to be known </p><p>as "Sherman's March to the Sea". </p><p> Finally, after Union forces had invaded the Confederate capital of Richmond, the </p><p>Confederate states surrendered on April 9, 1865, at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia. The </p><p>Union was preserved. </p><p>Answer the following questions: </p><p>1. What does secede mean? </p><p> a. To break away from </p><p> b. To join </p><p> c. To accomplish </p><p> d. To lose </p><p> Answer: </p><p> a. To break away from </p><p>2. Which of the following best describes why 11 southern states seceded from the Union? </p><p> a. Because the government wanted the states to make important decisions </p><p> concerning slavery. </p><p> b.

Because the southern states did not want the government to make </p><p> important decisions for them concerning slavery </p><p> d. Because the government did not want to malke important decisions for the </p><p> southern states concerning slavery. </p><p> Answer: </p><p> c.
