During the battle of the south between states rights which meant the power and decisions a state would have a decision was made of secession. The differences between the north and the south grew because of the power and opinions that each side received and contributed. Even though people believe the civil war was caused by the state rights in some ways it was by the differences of slavery. The tension between the sides were strong which lead to the civil war, but were all caused by their disputes of slavery moving on towards the new expanding territories.
The issue of slavery is brought up several times throughout the book. Arthur Fremantle, the British observer, believed that the South was fighting to protect slavery and their way of life. Colonel Chamberlain also mentioned slavery as a reason for the war and stated that he found it to be appalling. Despite racism and prejudice in the North, many northerners still believed that the slaves should be freed. They saw the institution of slavery as contradictory to the Bible and civilized society.
The differences between “Because I could not stop for Death” and “Success is Counted Sweetest” go to show that she is no exception to this reality. For one there are obvious differences such as the length of the poems. Even though both poems are relatively short, the poem “Because I could not stop for Death” is about twice as long, in terms of stanzas, when compared to “Success is Counted Sweetest”. But there are also some differences when you look a little deeper. One main difference is Emily Dickinson 's use of literary tools, such as personification and metaphors.
Besides, “one of the goals of the romantic poets was to convey ideas not only through rational means but by conveying feelings and moods” (Kukathas 280).

Although it is not definite, Byron demonstrates that even though he does not know the person, if a person is pure on the outside, he or she must be fully pure on the inside as well. Is there a deeper meaning behind Byron’s poem? Kukathas states, “[a]t first reading, it might seem that the poem is merely a beautiful tribute to a lovely woman…which does not offer much else of intellectual interest.
In sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare the word choice, as in Browning's Sonnet 43, also uses words that are not common to everyday conversations in the English language. For example Shakespeare uses "impediments" and "tempests" in place of the common words "obstructions" and "disturbances" or "flaws" his choice or words for his sonnet help to show the serious tone, and show that his lesson on love is important.

Therefore, according to Americans in the years prior to the Civil War, conflict was inevitable. As a central figure in the Republican Party and passionate advocate for anti-slavery, William Henry Seward characterized the conflict between the Southern Democrats and Northern Republicans as inevitable. Each political party had two radically different ideologies regarding the expansion of slavery into western territories. The Southern Democrats believed that slavery should exist in all western states while the Northern Republicans strongly disagreed. Similar to the ideologies of the Republicans, Seward believed that slavery was unjust and humans were granted the r... ... middle of paper ... ...ry as inhumane and against universal suffrage.
Numerous social issues befell, developing controversy which would later lead to the Civil War. An event that caused great strife was the Kansas-Nebraska Act, which allowed popular sovereignty to decide the legality of slavery in those areas. This act was devised so that it would reduce tensions and perhaps solve the issue of slavery. Yet, it had the complete opposite effect, as it led to increased tensions and violence. Since it eliminated the restriction on slavery north of the 36° 30’ line, antislavery Northerners were outraged, believing that the whole implication was a plot to “turn free territory into a ‘dreary region… inhabited by masters and slaves.’” (Deverell and White 447) Pro-slaver... ... middle of paper ... ...ews of social and political issues, thus causing the most brutal war America has ever encountered.
This made it hard to compromise since the South depended heavily on slavery and was more a costumed to it. Yet the North knew it was both morally and ethically wrong to pursue such an idea such as slavery. The Civil War is known as an impending crisis due to the fact that it was an inevitable situation and was completely unavoidable. The Civil War has proven to be a fight over various battles and conflicts between the North and South. The main overlying battle was slavery, and this battle has had the most impact on our Country’s future.

As social events, including the Mexican-American War and abolitionist movement, intensified the slavery debate, the Compromise of 1850 and the Kansas-Nebraska Act failed to ease political differences, leading to the Civil War. Social unrest, aided by the abolition movement, increased the debate over slavery as America obtain new lands from the Mexican-American War. This resulted in the passing of the Compromise of 1850 and the Kansas-Nebraska Act, which will result in failure. The failure of the compromises proved the nation could not function as one, resulting to the justification of the Southern Secession; war was inevitable.
As history shows us, Lincoln was right. Harpers Ferry convinced many Southerners that they could not live in peace nor safety as long as Northern abolitionists kept questioning their “peculiar institution” and pulling stunts like these, so they wanted to secede, almost like how certain people in the North had tried to leave society to create their own “utopias”. It appears that the only people who liked what Brown did were indeed the Transcendentalist writers in the Northeast who sought to leave society. As Davidson and Lytle point out, many historians think of the raid on Harpers Ferry as one of the most significant triggers to the Civil War. As to Brown’s trial, Virginia governor Henry Wise was left with a daunting decision that would change the course of history: hang Brown, which would please the South, but only at the expense of alienating the North and martyr him in the process, or he could let him live.
