One outcome was that Democrat Stephen A. Douglas won the 1858 Illinois senatorial election. The other was that it brought Lincoln to the national stage.

Stephen A. Douglas was twenty years old in 1833 when he left his native Vermont for the frontier state of Illlinois, where he arrived penniless and without friends. Within a year Douglas began practicing law in Morgan County. The young lawyer was a zealous admirer of Andrew Jackson, and his defense of Jackson earned him the nickname "The Little Giant." From an obscure beginning in Illinois politics, Douglas eventually became one of the nation's most powerful politicians and one of the finest legislators in Illinois history. He was a member of hte General Assembly from 1836 to 1837. In 1837 he made Registrar of the Land Office in Springfield. Douglas served as Secretary of State from 1840 until his appointment to the Illinois Supreme Court in 1841. He was elected to Congress in 1843 and to the Senate in 1847. As a senator, Douglas was influential in guiding the nation through the turbulent era before the Civil War. As a "western" senator, Douglas wanted legislation that would benefit both his section and Illinois. He was an early advocate of the transcontinental railroad with Chicago as the terminus. Douglas fought for a northern route even though a southern route seemed the most logical. It was to this end that he introduced the Kansas-Nebraska bill in 1854. To obtain southern support for his plan, Douglas allowed a repeal of hte Missouri Compromise, which has prohibited the extension of slavery north of Missouri. Northern opposition to the repeal of the Missouri Compromise was an unexpected blow for Douglas. The senator believed that the slavery issue would be settled either by climatic conditions or by popular sovereignty. Douglas was influential in developing the Compromise of 1850, which provided for popular sovereignty in the territories. Under this plan each territory was to decide by a mandate of its voters if slavery would be acceptable. Although sovereignty seeemd democratic, it ultimately failed; neighboring slave states and free states sent voters into the territory on election day to stuff ballot boxes. Border warfare also resulted from the two sides trying to gain the upper hand. Kansas was such a battleground. The term "Bloody Kansas" has been used ever since to depict the struggle that ensued. Douglas ran for re-election to the United States Senate in 1858. His opponent was a little-known Illinois politician named Abraham Lincoln. The two conducted their now-famous series of debates during the campaign. The Lincoln Douglas debates offered each candidate the opportunity to further express his opinion about the slavery question. Lincoln was not an abolitionist, but he did want to stop slavery from spreading into new areas. Douglas, who had seen a secesion movement in 1850, believed that to prohibit the spread of slavery by legislation was to invite civil war. Douglas won re-election in 1858. The debates, however, brought Lincoln into national prominence. The two men from Illinois faced each other again in the 1860 presidential election. Douglas had waited a long time to be the Democratic presidential candidate, but was defeated because of a badly divided party. After Lincoln's victory, Douglas went south to make personal appearances for sectional reconciliation. The times proved to be too volatile, and Douglas failed to slow the secessionist movement.

He was elected President in the election of 1860

August 4 - Abraham Lincoln was elected to the Illinois General Assembly for the first time, representing Sangamon County, which was much larger than it is today. He ran as a member of the Whig Party. This was his second attempt to gain a political office.

When US President Lincoln issued his Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction in 1863, Frederick Douglas was an outspoken critic of the plan. Since the plan only required 10% of Southern States voters of the 1860 elections to swear loyalty to the United States, Douglas did not see this as any measure to help Blacks gain any political power. He called it an entire contradiction to the US Republic's stand on equality.

The US presidential election pitted one Republican, Abraham Lincoln against three other candidates. Despite the party names of these candidates, all of them were Democrats. This divided the Democratic Party and helped Republican Lincoln gain the presidency. The nation remained divided however, over the talk about secession, the future of slavery and the future of the Democratic Party.

It was meant to be a straightforward march on Richmond.

Yes I would say it is okay, as we can gain knowledge from others and their religion. But hurting each others religion should not be encouraged at all.

There are debates among the historians who have investigated the reason for the South African War. It is believed the war is related to the control the British wanted to gain of the country due to the supply of gold.

In very simple terms it was state versus Federal rights and also a strong rift between the north and south. It was not until that the the war was based on the morality of slavery when Abraham Lincoln used the emancipation proclamation to free slaves and gain political momentum for the civil war
