  • US Constitution

    Since May 25, 1787, the 55 delegates had gathered almost daily in the State House (Independence Hall) in Philadelphia to revise the Articles of Confederation. By the middle of June, it became apparent to the delegates that to merely amend the Articles of Confederation would not be sufficient. Instead, they would write an entirely new document designed to clearly define and separate the powers of the central government, the powers of the states, the rights of the people and how the representative

  • Abarham Lincohn Becomes the 15th President

    Possibly the greatest of all American presidents, Abraham Lincoln was born to poor parents in a three-sided shack in Hodgkinville, Kentucky, in 1809. He failed at many things in life before succeeding at being president. Given to bouts of depression, he was both funny and sad, often at the same time. And yet we love him for his vision, his patience, his wisdom, and his kindness. Even more importantly, he led the nation through the four bloodiest years of its history.
  • The Civil War Starts

    As early as 1858, the ongoing conflict between North and South over the issue of slavery had led Southern leadership to discuss a unified separation from the United States. By 1860, the majority of the slave states were publicly threatening secession if the Republicans, the anti-slavery party, won the presidency. Following Republican Abraham Lincoln's victory over the divided Democratic Party in November 1860, South Carolina immediately initiated secession proceedings. On December 20, the South

    In 1863 President Lincoln had issued the Emancipation Proclamation declaring “all persons held as slaves within any State, or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free.” Nonetheless, the Emancipation Proclamation did not end slavery in the nation. Lincoln recognized that the Emancipation Proclamation would have to be followed by a constitutional amendment in order to guarantee the abolishmen
