2) In examining the 1851 political cartoon (Document #3), how are Southerners arguing against Northern
protests of the 1850 Fugitive Slave Act? To what extent does this image relate to the issues raised
regarding nullification in Documents #1 and #2? How does the 1856 political ca cartoon (Document #4)
relate to the issues arising from the Kansas-Nebraska Act? To what extent did slavery complicate the

found out this was unreasonable and causing of the Union break apart.
