Abraham was the leader of the north and led them during the civil war against the south. Lincoln was the first American president to be assassinated but certainly was not the last. President Lincoln was killed because the conspirators, like John Wilkes Booth, were angry at how the north fought the Civil War since the outcome was not good for them.
Besides being just against slavery he was also fought for women’s rights. He thought that blacks should not be able to vote if the women could not either. Douglass believed that everyone’s input would be important, not just men. As the Civil War approached, Douglass felt that if the war was to end slavery then the black slaves should fight alongside the soldiers. When the war was over slavery was abolished but in the Presidential Election of 1864, Douglass did not support Lincoln because he felt that Lincoln was not enforcing that the blacks still could not vote, instead he supported John C. Fremont.
For many reasons, the South did not like what the constitution said. There were many conflicts with the compromise of 1850, map shown in (Document A) and the fugitive slave act. Certain northerners were so against slavery and the fugitive slave act that they even posted warnings for the slaves. Kidnappers were being sent after the slaves, and how Northern abolitionists were revolting against the South's rules and regulations this fugitive slave act also helped drive the tension deeper into the Un-United States.

After thorough research it is learned that the accusations about Gen. Forrest were false. The 1500 men under General Forrest acted only as men and as soldiers in their capture of Fort Pillow. According to Turtledove, in 1861 the Confederate Army built a fort and named it after Gen. Pillow (57).

The colonies knew that it was just a gesture to intimidate them and was not really for their protection. Plus, the added insult of being forced to house and feed these troops made them even more resentful over the abuse of power by England. In answer to this the Constitution in article 1, section 10, which states; “No soldier shall, without the consent of congress, lay any duty of tonnage, keep troops, of ships of war in time of peace. And lastly in the Bill Of Rights, amendment 3, “No soldier shall, in the time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
John Brown re-emerged in Harper's Ferry, Virginia with a wild plan to abolish slavery. His plan: to take over the federal arsenal in Harper's Ferry, pass out weapons to local slaves, initiate a huge revolt, and thus free the slaves. What happened: he and his men took over a building but were quickly holed up by Marines led by Lt. Col. Robert E. Lee. He was quickly captured, tried, convicted, sentenced to death, and hanged.

Prior to the Civil War, African Americans were never treated very humanely. The Whites were the dominant race while the African Americans suffered under their commands as slaves who were treated unequally.
