The Cause/s of War

1. Please use your textbook (chapter 16 mostly) and scan it to figure out what you think are the most likely causes of the US Civil War. Follow these instructions:

a) Scan/preview Chapter 16 (other chapters might also be helpful) for ideas.
b) Write a list of potential causes in your spiral.
c) Circle the one YOU would make an argument for as being one of the most significant causes of the US Civil War.
d) Write a list of reasons WHY you think this cause is the most significant (data from book is important in coming up with reasons).

Bring to class FRIDAY (when I will be back).

Tomorrow in class you *should* (if dvd arrives today) be taking notes on a documentary. Details in class.
