For this discussion board you will use the following documents The Benning speech in the module folder Any two secession documents (listed by state) in the module folder The provided list of Lincoln quotes in the module folder Prompt: You are working as a teaching assistant for HIS 131. In a few days, you will give a lecture to students on Secession. The class is covering the documents listed above. Your lecture should address the following questions (1) What were Benning’s main justifications for Georgia’s choice to secede? (what complaints do you see most often? Do his grievances fit into any clear categories or themes?) Do NOT rest in general statements. You should be clear here about his specific objections/grievances. Statements like “he was angry the north had too much power” will not fair well on the rubric. Power to do what? Be specific and cite evidence from your required sources. (2) What arguments did Benning use to convince Virginia delegates to secede? Which of his arguments do you think were best received by the assembled delegates? Explain your answer. (3) How do Benning’s arguments connect with the two secession documents you chose? How do they differ? (4) Compare the Lincoln quotes on slavery with the Benning document and the secession documents. (a) What was Lincoln’s view on the political issue, and institution, of slavery? Did it change over time? If so, how? (b) What does that comparison add to your understanding of the breakdown in the American political system in the 1850s?
