Overview

January 1860 through April 1861 will prove to be momentous for the country. The Democrat Party will split in two, a new President will have been elected that does not support slavery expansion into the territories and one state will have created a Constitutional crisis by seceding from the Union. And the local newspapers cover the house dividing.
