Since the beginning of time man has pursued power by any means necessary the Civil War is a great example of this theory in action The reason conflict started and the reason it became such a two sided battle all points back to one thing power The way it should be distributed what type of people should have it and who should have the most all stir up conflicts between people with different opinions In the end the Civil War started due to a struggle for power and when it was all said and done the lines had still not been clearly drawn In the time before the Civil War there were struggles for power all around One of the biggest was the North versus the South constantly trying to compromise political power They were trying to figure out a way to keep the power in Congress between the slave states and the free states equal The Missouri Compromise and the Kansas-Nebraska Act are two great examples of the long list of compromises the two sides have tried to come to The compromises continued but to no avail the subject of who had the final say involving slavery was one that had to be defined clearly and this could not be compromised Another struggle was between the Blacks with few white Northerners on their side and the Southern slave owners The Southerners claimed that they should have power over the Blacks because they could take care of them and keep them on the right path Where as the Blacks thought they should have control over themselves They thought that they could take care of themselves and that they were being treated wrongly by the white slave owners The South also just wanted more power they didnt want an even distribution between the state governments and the federal government They believed that the state should have all the power and thats not what the Union wanted
