The United States was experiencing fast population growth and fascinating development in the areas of education, publishing, inventions, communication and travel. Before the growth and expansion, it was possible that slavery would have remained more of a local issue. However, with the increased speed of communication and the battle for power continuing between the northern and southern states, conflict became inevitable. Abraham Lincoln, elected as president during this time, was committed to the preservation of the Union. However, with the secession of the state of South Carolina, the attack on Fort Sumter, and the subsequent secession of additional states, civil war became a reality.
