This is a 47 page powerpoint that covers major issues that were going on prior to the Civil War.
In this powerpoint I include important people, events, and issues that students MUST have a background on in order to understand why the Civil War was fought. These include:
Steven A. Douglas
Differences in the North vs. the South
Dred Scott Decision
Excerpt from Lincoln's and Davis' First Inaugural Address
