They said Scott had no right to sue, never had been free, and that the Constitution didn’t declare that territories could prohibit slavery, which meant the Missouri Compromise was unconstitutional. Luckily for Scott, after the decision, Peter Blow's sons (childhood friends) had helped pay Scott's legal fees over the years. After the Supreme Court’s decision, the sons had bought Dred and Harriet R. Scott, and set them free. Unfortunately, Scott died nine months

John Wilkes Booth was born in Maryland in 1838 that remained in the North during the Civil War. As the conflict entered its final stages, he and several associates hatched a plot to kidnap the president and take him to Richmond, the Confederate capital. On March 20, 1865, the day of the planned kidnapping, Lincoln failed to appear at the spot where Booth and his six fellow conspirators lay in wait.
As Mexico was granted independence in 1821, America took over former Mexican land such as the former republic of Texas 1836-1845.

After Lincolns’ failed attempt at convincing the slave states [the south] to stop slavery South Carolina, followed by Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas all seceded from the union on December 20th of the same year. They named their states the Confederate states of America. Their president, Jefferson Davis, was a former U.S.
The Battle of the Alamo took place between February 23 and March 6, 1836. The battle consisted of a thirteen day siege proceeding an all out attack from the Alamo Mission near what is now San Antonio, Texas. The battle left an estimated 300 of the Mexican forces killed or wounded and just two of the Republic of Texas surviving. I believe that this battle really helped to cement the idea of secession into the minds of the Texians and pushed them to revolt. President Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, the president of Mexico at the time, started to move the governmental system of Mexico towards a dictatorship.

Secession for Slavery Brett Kovel Teed Hist 111 10-16-13 Nearly 155 years after the end of the Civil War, new questions of why the Confederate States seceded have arisen amongst the historical and national communities. Was secession from the Union because of slavery or because of a constitutional right? According to General Bradley T. Johnson,” every lover of constitutional liberty, liberty controlled by law, all over the world begins to understand that the war was not a war waged by the South in defense of slavery, but was a war to protect liberty won and bequeathed by free ancestors.” Now, General Bradley said this in 1896, nearly 31 years after the conclusion of the Civil War. It could be that he, like
Vanessa AP US History Period 3 Mr. Catalinich 31 January 2012 Events in the 1850’s that Contributed to the Causes of the Civil War In order to get back their “property”, the South pushed Congress to pass the Fugitive Law of 1850 as a part of the Great Compromise that postponed war between the North and South for four years. The Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 was mostly aimed at the Northern States, requiring all citizens of America to find runaway slaves, regardless of their moral beliefs. The South viewed slaves not as human beings, but as property to be kept, sold, or even killed. It forced the North to become a part of the “slave system” even though they had clearly taken no part in any ownership. Those who tried to help slaves escape
