HISTORY

1)  SECTIONALISM: In your post, compare sectionalism in the antebellum US to sectionalism now. There were definite sectional/regional splits in the 1800s, but are we so much more of a mass culture now that we don’t have sectionalism? What are the regional splits and how are the regions and splits different, then and now? To get you thinking along these lines, look up some definitions of sectionalism. Consider sectionalism in the antebellum period (antebellum means pre-war, which — in this case — refers to the US Civil War from 1861 to 1865) and definitely make some historical comparisons. In other words, don’t just root your response here in the present day.

(2)  SECESSION:  When the South created the Confederacy, they were literally leaving the US — a process called secession. In your post, address this question: Was there a tipping point for Southern secession? In other words, do you think there was a “point of no return” after which the southern states inevitably would choose to secede from the US? If so, what was that tipping point? (HINT: The videos could be really helpful with this one. It could be an event, a law, or even a person that you think made the big difference to secession becoming a reality.) Explain your reasoning behind your decision of what was the tipping point and be specific. If you don’t think it’s possible to find a single tipping point, explain why there’s no one tipping point and discuss how and where it could have gone a different way (a different history — one in which the South did NOT secede).
