1800's American History Tmeline

  • Louisiana Purchase

    Louisiana Purchase
    The Louisiana Purchase was a peace treaty, it was important for many reasons. Number one was because it was it gave the United States a lot of land for super cheap. This would help America grow to a bigger, better and stronger nation. It also was a major treaty to stop the war with France and create peace, it was like there offering to us. And I good one too. The deal was made by French and American government.
  • Underground Railroad

    Underground Railroad
    The underground railroad was a great escape route for slaves to go up North. Many people went under cover to help African Americans escape to the “New World” If you were caught helping the slaves you could be but in jail or put to death. It was a very risky mission but I am glad they helped them out in the end.
  • Uncle Tom’s Cabin

    Uncle Tom’s Cabin
    This was a very important book, it showed all what happens as you are a slave. All the hard ship you go through and obstacles. People in the South wanted to ban this book because looking at their actions on paper were horrifying, even for them. This made people in the North outraged when they found out what had been going on. I watched this book in a movie last year and I cried, it was horrible, and true!
  • Lincoln was shot

    Lincoln was shot
    John Wilkes Booth, shot and killed Lincoln in Ford's Theater, this was a horrible event to rock the Nation. The Civil War was almost at an end thanks to Lincoln and his cooperation skills. Lincoln was an AMAZING president and a blessing to this Nation. He helped us through tough times and will always be remembered for that.
  • 5th Amendment Ratified

    5th Amendment Ratified
    This was a big step forward but yet, a huge step back. It is amazing that men of different color could vote and finally be equal. It is also a huge step back because women are just as equal as men. It's okay though because they got back around to that later(:
  • Wright brothers first flight

    Wright brothers first flight
    They were the first to create a a plane and lift off the ground to see the world from above, no it wasn't high, but it was better than anybody before. This was a huge advancement in technology, for centuries people had dreamed of flight and so much more. The Wright brothers did it, no it wasn't a 747 but they were up high, it was amazing and changed the world forever!
