Touched by fire Election of 1860 Brown’s martyrdom is galvanizing to the extreme abolitionists in the North. (December 1859 John Brown is hanged) Democratic Convention: Charleston, SC; ‘Fire Eaters’ (most radical pro-slavery democrats). S. Douglas (Northern) vs. J. Davis (Mississippi) Democratic party nearly implodes at the convention. Fire eaters help to dismember the democratic party. Baltimore Convention. Summer of 1860 is another bad convention, none of the issues resolved, more divisive. Southern democrats who are pro-slavery walk out of the convention again. Southern Democrats nominate John C. Breckinridge, KY on a pro- slavery platform. Northern Dems – Douglas Republicans: A. Lincoln. Lincoln wanted to end slaveries expansion, which southerners believed would kill slavery. Lincoln’s party put in false supporters to give him a lot of cheer. ‘The Railsplitter’ Democratic party splits again and makes the Constitutional Union Party.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
