Causes of the War
The American Civil War: The Right Answer
In 1807, it became illegal to import slaves to the United States. However, that didn't put a stop to slavery in the South. While slavery wasn't the only cause of the Civil War, it certainly was a big factor. Readers learn more about why the war started with detailed accounts of the abolitionist movement and the Kansas-Nebraska Act. Among other key events, this book features in-depth information budding historians are looking for, questions and comments in the margins that will engage readers' critical thinking skills, and historical illustrations and end-of-chapter boxed insets will augment the curriculum-supporting text.
