1860- Abraham Lincoln is elected president (this is very important. This is the start of a new life for African Americans and for everyone. It is the start of a civil war.)
á
1861- Civil war begins (the south if fighting the north and vise versa for slavery reasons. The south want slaves and the north do not. The south feel that without slaves, their cotton business will not prosper and they will be weak. The north feels that it is unjust to have slaves, even though racism was very high in the north. It is a deadly war, one that America has never seen)
á
1861- On April 12th Attack on Fort Sumter off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina starts the Civil war.
á
1862- Known as the single most bloodiest day of the entire war, the battle of Antietam was fought. á
1863- Abraham Lincoln issues the Emancipation Proclamation freeing slaves (The tricky part of this is that it actually did not free any slaves, the 13th amendment did. The Proclamation actually was supposed to ban slavery in the south but the war was going on and Lincoln had no say in the south. The Emancipation Proclamation actually just looked good in writing.)
á
1865- The Civil war ends at Appomattox courthouse (this 4-year war took a toll on America. The south surrendered and the north won. America had never seen such a war. It was one of the bloodiest wars ever and the worst war ever seen up to that point in time. It led to the death or wounding of more than 600,000 people. The south was forced to be joined back into the union but slavery had to be banned.)
á
1865- President Lincoln was assassinated. (Was shot while attending a performance of Our American Cousin at Ford's Theatre with his wife. The assassin was áJohn Wilkes Booth hoping to overthrow the Federal government.)
á
1865- thirteenth amendment abolishes slavery
á
1868- Fourteenth Amendment grants full citizenship to all (including African Americans) born in the US except Native Americans.á
á
1869- the first railroad connecting the East and the west coast was officially completed.

Oooo... 1860-1865 consisted of the Great American Civil War.á It was one of the most bloodiest wars americans had ever seen and just about everyone was affected.á It was when South Carolina and many other states succeeded from the Union and President Lincoln supposedly "reenforced" his troops at fort sumpter.á The Confederates fired upon the fort and they had to surrender.á However, from there on, the Civil War took off!

of course, the union won thanks to Lincolns bold decisions and General Grant, General Sherman, General Sheridan, and many other general's destruction of the south.

don't forget, the civil war was not over slavery. it began b/c the south broke away from the union. the north began war to bring the south back into the union. the war was never about slavery. after the north won lincoln was pretty much like, well i might as well get slavery over with now cause thats just another war waiting.

the emancipation proclamation acctually only freed slaves in confederate territory which was taken over by the north. it was done at a time where the north was just begining to win a few battles. it did not free slaves in border states, and was mainly said by lincoln to make european powers think the north had power, so they wouldnt help the confederacy.

The Emancipation Proclamation only freed slaves in the states that were in Rebellion. It did not free the slaves that were in the border states and it didn't free slaves in the areas that had alresdy been captured.
