Homework - 8th grade
We are now on the road towards the Civil War. This is a horrible war with the highest number of American casualties of any war we have ever fought. As with any conflict, it is not the result of one event. Rather it is the culmination of a series of events throughout the 1850s. Included are: the Compromise of 1850, the Kansas-Nebraska Act, Bleeding Kansas, Fugitive Slave Act, Raid at Harper's Ferry, Dred Scott decision, Lincoln's election.
