3. The Civil War, according to the historian Avery Craven, “did not arise from permanent physical and social conditions. It sprang rather from temporary emotional factors. . . . Men fought because they had come to fear and hate--because they had at last accepted a distorted picture of both themselves and the people in other sections.” Do you agree with Craven? What, in your opinion, were the turning points along the path to the Civil War? Did these lead inevitably to a violent confrontation between North and South? I agree with craven: turning points: Haitian revolution – 1793 – goes wayyy back butttt history is not a single event it is the linkage of different events – domino effect! what happened in the Haitian revolution? o well: the slave “revolt” scared the shit out of the slaveholders in the south – they were afraid that the slaves back home would get the idea and decide to start revolting as well this brought alive fears that their slaves would try and revolt increased their paranoia o Louisiana Purchase became possible for really cheap
