Product Description
This is a bundle of three, highly animated, power point presentation on the events prior to the Presidential Election of 1860, including the Lincoln-Douglas debates of 1858, and the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854. There are a total of 56 slides in the presentations, all of which are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

There were many political movements and events taking place in the country that would have profound implications on the future of the United States. Most of these were set in motion between 1830 and 1860, just prior to the Civil War. Many of these revolved around slavery and issues related to it, others had to do with the ever expanding continent and how the land would be distributed and others had to do with political control and direction.

Power point presentation #1, the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 contains 18 slides and covers the following:

The Lincoln-Douglas debates were a series of seven debates between Democrat Stephen Douglas and Abraham Lincoln while both were running for Illinois congressional seats. Douglas was forced to defend his position on "popular sovereignty" which Lincoln attacked aggressively. These debates elevated Lincoln to national fame and subsequent position as the leader in the new republican party.

The United States presidential election of 1860 served as the immediate impetus for the outbreak of the American Civil War. The United States had been divided during the 1850s on questions surrounding the expansion of slavery and the rights of slave owners. In 1860, these issues broke the Democratic Party into Northern and Southern factions, and a new Constitutional Union Party appeared.

In the face of a divided opposition, the Republican Party, dominant in the North, secured a majority of the electoral votes, putting Abraham Lincoln in the White House with almost no support from the South.

Power point presentation #3, the Presidential Election of 1860 contains 20 slides and covers the following:
