The American Civil War

इनेप्लिज २०७४ साउन १७ गते १८:४६ मा प्रकाशित

The Civil War was one of the bloodiest battles in the U.S. Many people died. This was a battle fought against slavery. The North and South were against each other. This war was after the Revolutionary War, when America was finally free.They became a new country. They still used slave labor. But people thought it was wrong to treat people like this. This became war.

Nat Turner, John Brown, Abraham Lincoln, and Harriet Tubman were against this. Harriet Tubman escaped from her owner and helped other slaves escape through a route of what is now known as The Underground Railroad. John Brown led a raid on armory in Harpers Ferry, VA. He was unfortunately caught and hanged. Nat Turner led a raid on plantation owners who had slaves and was also caught and hanged. Abraham Lincoln issued a legal document known as the Emancipation Proclamation, and became 16th president of the U.S.

The Northern states wanted no slavery because they thought it was wrong. The Southern states needed slavery for a cheap labor for crops to be grown. The states split and made their own countries. The South was now called The Confederate States of America, and the North, The United States of America. They kept fighting, many people barely survived, until Southern general Robert E. Lee, and Northern general Ulysses S. Grant, went to Appomattox Court House, and ended it.

This is where The Civil War ended, after all the battles. Unfortunately, Abraham Lincoln died at Ford’s Theatre assassinated by John Wilkes Booth, but peace was restored, and the states were finally reunited. Segregation laws passed, Martin Luther King stopped them, and to this day, there is no more racism, only peace.
