Good Morning, Scholars.
I CAN: DESCRIBE HOW THE KANSAS-NEBRASKA ACT (1854) INCREASED TENSION BETWEEN THE NORTH AND SOUTH.
FOCUS QUESTION: BASED ON THE LONG-STANDING TENSION BETWEEN THE NORTH AND SOUTH, DO YOU THINK IT WAS INEVITABLE (UNAVOIDABLE) THAT IT WOULD LEAD TO WAR?
Yesterday we discussed how the Compromise of 1850 led to increased bitterness between the North and the South. Today, we will describe how the passing of the Kansas-Nebraska Act (1854) only further increased the conflict with the Northern and Southern states over the issue of slavery. As the nation expanded westward, the North and South fought bitterly over whether slavery should exist in these new territories. Remember to closely analyze the text material for today. Cite details and write in complete sentences.
EXIT QUESTION: PRETEND YOU ARE THE EDITOR OF A NEWSPAPER IN 1856. WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE AS A HEADLINE (TITLE) FOR YOUR STORY ABOUT THE CONFLICT IN KANSAS? WHY?
Keep working hard--I'm proud of you! Mr. Bruning
