Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Of the following, the most threatening problem for the Union from 1861 through 1863 was

    • A.

      Possible British recognition of the Confederacy

    • B.

      Spanish intervention in Santo Domingo

    • C.

      French objections to the Union blockade

    • D.

      British insistence on the abolition of slavery

    • E.

      British objections to the Union position on "continuous voyage"

    Correct Answer
    A. Possible British recognition of the Confederacy
    Explanation
    During the American Civil War, the most threatening problem for the Union from 1861 through 1863 was the possible British recognition of the Confederacy. This would have meant that the British government officially acknowledged the Confederacy as a separate and independent nation, which would have given them diplomatic support and potentially led to other European countries recognizing the Confederacy as well. British recognition would have greatly strengthened the Confederacy's position and made it much more difficult for the Union to achieve victory.

    • A.

      Liberate the slaves

    • B.

      Prevent European powers from meddling in American affairs

    • C.

      Preserve the Union

    • D.

    • E.

      Forestall a Southern invasion of the North

    Correct Answer
    C. Preserve the Union
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to preserve the Union. The North went to war with the South in order to maintain the unity of the United States and prevent the secession of the Southern states. The Southern states had declared their independence and formed the Confederacy, posing a threat to the integrity of the country. The Union wanted to maintain its political and economic power and prevent the division of the nation.

    When the Emancipation Proclamation was issued at the beginning of 1863, its immediate effect was to

    • A.

      End the Civil War

    • B.

      Abolish slavery

    • C.

      Free slaves held in the border states

    • D.

      Alienate Britain and France

    • E.

      Strengthen the moral cause of the Union

    Correct Answer
    E. Strengthen the moral cause of the Union
    Explanation
    The Emancipation Proclamation, issued at the beginning of 1863, did not directly end the Civil War or abolish slavery. Instead, its immediate effect was to strengthen the moral cause of the Union. The proclamation declared that all slaves in Confederate territory were to be set free, framing the war as a fight for the liberation of enslaved individuals. This had a significant impact on public opinion, both domestically and internationally, as it highlighted the Union's commitment to ending slavery and portrayed the Confederacy as defending an immoral institution.

    The Battle of Antietam, September 17, 1862, is considered pivotal to the outcome of the Civil War becaues it

    • A.

      Represented the Union's deepest thrust into southern territory

    • B.

      Forestalled the possibility of European intervention

    • C.

      Resulted in the border states joining the Confederacy

    • D.

      Marked the first use of black troops by the Union army

    • E.

      Confirmed George McClellan's status as the leading Union general

    Correct Answer
    B. Forestalled the possibility of European intervention
    Explanation
    The Battle of Antietam, September 17, 1862, forestalled the possibility of European intervention. This is because the Union's victory at Antietam gave President Lincoln the opportunity to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared that all slaves in Confederate territory were to be set free. This declaration made it politically impossible for European powers, such as Britain and France, to recognize and support the Confederacy, as they were opposed to slavery. By forestalling European intervention, the Union was able to continue the war without facing foreign interference, which ultimately contributed to the outcome of the Civil War.

    • A.

      Lincoln had sent more federal troops to reinforce the fort

    • B.

      Lincoln had sent food and supplies to the fort

    • C.

    • E.

      Southern support for secession was already weakening

    Correct Answer
    B. Lincoln had sent food and supplies to the fort
    Explanation
    The Confederate batteries fired on Fort Sumter because they learned that Lincoln had sent food and supplies to the fort. This action by Lincoln indicated his intention to support and reinforce the fort, which threatened the Confederate forces. By attacking the fort, the Confederates aimed to prevent the reinforcement and resupply of Federal troops, thereby asserting their control over the region.

    When the Civil War began, the South's greatest advantage was its

    • A.

      Greater ability to wage offensive war

    • B.

      More consistent and talented military leadership

    • C.

      Superior industrial capacity

    • D.

      More developed modern transportation system

    • E.

      Northern sympathizers

    Correct Answer
    B. More consistent and talented military leadership
    Explanation
    The South's greatest advantage during the Civil War was its more consistent and talented military leadership. This means that the leaders in the South were more skilled and experienced in conducting military operations. This advantage allowed them to effectively plan and execute offensive strategies, giving them an edge in the war. With strong leadership, the South was able to make strategic decisions and coordinate their troops more efficiently, which played a significant role in their ability to fight and sustain the war effort.

    The South's greatest weakness during the war was its

    • A.

      Military leadership

    • B.

      Slave population

    • C.

      Ethnic diversity

    • D.

      Ethnic unity

    • E.

      Economy

    Correct Answer
    E. Economy
    Explanation
    During the Civil War, the South's greatest weakness was its economy. The Southern states heavily relied on agriculture, particularly the production of cotton, which was their main export. However, the Union blockade of Southern ports severely disrupted trade and prevented the South from exporting its goods. Additionally, the South lacked the industrial infrastructure and resources that the North possessed, making it difficult for them to sustain their war effort. The economic strain resulted in inflation, food shortages, and financial instability, ultimately contributing to the South's downfall.

    The North's greatest strength during the war was its

    • A.

      Ethnic unity

    • B.

      Military leadership

    • C.

      Economy

    • D.

      Morale

    • E.

      Black population

    Correct Answer
    C. Economy
    Explanation
    The North's greatest strength during the war was its economy. The Northern states had a more developed industrial base compared to the agrarian South. This allowed them to produce weapons, ammunition, and other supplies in large quantities. The North also had a more extensive transportation network, which facilitated the movement of troops and supplies. Additionally, the Union's economy was bolstered by its ability to raise funds through taxation and borrowing. This economic advantage played a crucial role in sustaining the North's war effort and ultimately contributed to its victory.

    The South had hoped Britain would come to its aid because the British 

    • A.

      Were sympathetic to their cause

    • B.

      Hated Lincoln

    • C.

      Still had slavery

    • D.

      Wanted to expand Canadian territory

    • E.

      Were dependent on southern cotton

    Correct Answer
    E. Were dependent on southern cotton
    Explanation
    The South had hoped Britain would come to its aid because the British were dependent on southern cotton. Cotton was a major industry in the South, and Britain relied heavily on the South for its cotton supply. The South believed that if they cut off the supply of cotton to Britain, it would put pressure on the British government to support the Confederacy in the American Civil War. Therefore, the South saw Britain's dependence on southern cotton as a potential leverage point to gain support.

    Britain the U.S. were nearly provoked into war by

    • A.

      The incompetence of Charles Francis Adams

    • B.

      Britain's disregard for the Union blockade

    • C.

      The refusal of the British to publish Uncle Tom's Cabin

    • D.

      The Trent affair

    Correct Answer
    D. The Trent affair
    Explanation
    The Trent affair was a diplomatic incident between the United States and Britain during the American Civil War. It involved the capture of two Confederate diplomats aboard a British ship, the Trent, by the U.S. Navy. This act was seen as a violation of British neutrality and caused a major uproar in Britain. The incident nearly provoked a war between Britain and the U.S., as tensions escalated and both countries prepared for conflict. Ultimately, through diplomatic negotiations, the crisis was resolved peacefully, but it highlighted the potential for war between the two nations and the importance of maintaining diplomatic relations.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    The main reason that the British did not try to break the Union blockade was

    • A.

      They did not want to fight the superior Union Navy

    • B.

      They feared losing northern grain shipments

    • C.

      The British upper class supported the South

    • D.

      It caused no hardship in Britain

    • E.

      They did not want to fight the superior Union Army

    Correct Answer
    B. They feared losing northern grain shipments
    Explanation
    The main reason that the British did not try to break the Union blockade was because they feared losing northern grain shipments. Breaking the blockade would have risked angering the Union Navy and potentially disrupting the important grain trade between Britain and the northern states. This would have had significant economic consequences for Britain, as they heavily relied on these grain shipments. Therefore, the fear of losing these shipments acted as a deterrent for the British from attempting to break the Union blockade.

  • 12. 

    During the first hlaf of the war, the Union relied mostly on

    • A.

      The draft

    • B.

      Bounty brokers

    • C.

      Substitute brokers

    • D.

      Volunteers

    • E.

      Foreign mercenaries

    Correct Answer
    D. Volunteers
    Explanation
    During the first half of the war, the Union relied mostly on volunteers. This means that individuals willingly joined the Union forces without any form of coercion or incentive. This was a common practice at the beginning of the war when both sides believed that the conflict would be short-lived. However, as the war dragged on and casualties mounted, the Union had to resort to other methods such as the draft and bounty brokers to meet the increasing demand for soldiers. Nonetheless, during the initial stages, volunteers played a crucial role in bolstering the Union army.

    Correct Answer
    E. Was the first significant step toward a unified banking system since 1836
    Explanation
    The establishment of a national banking system by the Union was the first significant step towards a unified banking system since 1836. This suggests that there had been a lack of a unified banking system for a significant period of time prior to this establishment.

      Lead to a general slave uprising

      Give him more constitutional authority

    • E.

      Appease radical abolitionists

    Lincoln hoped that a Union victory at First Manassas would lead to the capture of the Confederate capital because capturing the Confederate capital, which was Richmond, Virginia, would be a significant blow to the Confederacy and would weaken their overall position in the war. It would also boost the morale of the Union forces and potentially lead to a turning point in the conflict.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The most important factor in the Union victory at Antietam was

    • A.

      Britain's refusal to help the South

    • B.

      The Union's discovery of Lee's battle plans

    • C.

      Lincoln's removal of McClellan from command

    • D.

      The death of Stonewall Jackson

    • E.

      The use of the Gatlin gun

    Correct Answer
    B. The Union's discovery of Lee's battle plans
    Explanation
    The most important factor in the Union victory at Antietam was the Union's discovery of Lee's battle plans. This gave the Union a significant advantage as they were able to anticipate and counter Lee's movements. It allowed them to effectively position their troops and launch a successful attack, ultimately leading to the Union's victory. Without this crucial information, the outcome of the battle could have been very different. The discovery of Lee's battle plans was a strategic turning point for the Union forces at Antietam.

    The result of the Union victory at Antietam included all of the following except

    • A.

      Lincoln's issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation

    • B.

      Lincoln's removal of McClellan from command

    • C.

      Lee's reconsideration of his plans to invade the North

    • D.

      The death of Stonewall Jackson

    Correct Answer
    D. The death of Stonewall Jackson
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the death of Stonewall Jackson. The result of the Union victory at Antietam included Lincoln's issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared all slaves in Confederate territory to be free. It also led to Lincoln removing McClellan from command due to his failure to pursue and defeat the Confederate army. Additionally, Lee's plans to invade the North were reconsidered after the setback at Antietam. However, the death of Stonewall Jackson was not a direct result of the Union victory at Antietam.

    • D.

      States still in rebellion against the U.S.

    • E.

      Areas controlled by the Union Army

    Correct Answer
    D. States still in rebellion against the U.S.
    Explanation
    The Emancipation Proclamation declared free only those slaves in states still in rebellion against the U.S. This means that the proclamation did not apply to the Border States, Union territories, or areas controlled by the Union Army. It specifically targeted the slave states that were actively fighting against the Union during the Civil War. By declaring the slaves in these states free, the Emancipation Proclamation aimed to weaken the Confederate war effort and bring an end to slavery in the United States.

    Explanation
    The Battle of Gettysburg did not guarantee Lincoln's reelection.

Other factors, such as his leadership during the war and the overall political climate at the time, also played a role in his reelection.

      It fully reopened the Mississippi River to northern trade

    • B.

      It guaranteed Lincoln's reelection

    • C.

      It forced Lee to surrender

    • D.

      It resulted in British aid

    Correct Answer
    A. It fully reopened the Mississippi River to northern trade
    Explanation
    The Union victory at Vicksburg was of major importance because it fully reopened the Mississippi River to northern trade. This was significant because the Mississippi River was a vital transportation route for the Union, allowing them to transport goods and supplies more easily. By regaining control of the river, the Union could effectively cut off Confederate supply lines and gain a strategic advantage in the Civil War. Additionally, reopening the Mississippi River to northern trade helped stimulate the economy and bolstered the Union's war effort.

    • C.

      Copperheads

    • D.

      Union Party

    • E.

      Northern War Democrats

    Correct Answer
    C. Copperheads
    Explanation
    During the American Civil War, the Copperheads were a faction of Democrats in the North who opposed the war and called for a negotiated peace with the Confederacy. They were primarily located in the Midwest and were seen as a threat to Union morale because their anti-war sentiments undermined the war effort. Copperheads were accused of sympathizing with the Confederacy and were seen as disloyal to the Union cause. Their opposition to the war and support for a negotiated peace made them a significant threat to Union morale during the conflict.

    Explanation
    In the 1864 presidential election, Lincoln chose a southern Democrat as his vice presidential running mate. This decision was part of Lincoln's strategy to promote unity and reconciliation during the Civil War. By selecting a Democrat from the South, Lincoln aimed to show his willingness to work with individuals from different political affiliations and regions in order to heal the nation's wounds. This choice also helped to garner support from Southern Democrats and demonstrate Lincoln's commitment to a more inclusive government.

      Vicksburg

    • D.

      Atlanta

    • E.

      Appomattox

    Correct Answer
    D. Atlanta
    Explanation
    Lincoln's reelection was greatly influenced by the Union victory at Atlanta. The capture of Atlanta by Union forces under General William T. Sherman in September 1864 was a significant turning point in the Civil War. It boosted morale for the Union and demonstrated their military strength, which helped Lincoln secure support and confidence from the Northern states. The victory at Atlanta also weakened the Confederacy's position and further diminished their chances of victory, making Lincoln's reelection more likely.

By this point, the Confederacy was facing significant losses and was in need of additional troops. Enlisting slaves was seen as a last-ditch effort to strengthen their military capabilities. However, this decision came too late in the war and did not significantly impact the outcome.

    The correct answer is the 13th Amendment. The Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order issued by President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War, which declared that all slaves in Confederate territory were to be set free. However, it did not abolish slavery entirely. Slavery was abolished in the United States through the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which was ratified in 1865. This amendment abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for a crime, throughout the entire country.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    Which of the following was a long term cause of the war?

    • A.

      Conflict over slavery in the west

    • B.

      Economic difference between the North and South

    • C.

      Failure of compromises

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the options listed - conflict over slavery in the west, economic differences between the North and South, and the failure of compromises - were long-term causes of the war. The conflict over slavery in the west heightened tensions between the North and South, as each side had different views on the expansion of slavery. Economic differences, such as the North's industrialization and the South's reliance on agriculture, also contributed to the divide. The failure of compromises, such as the Missouri Compromise and the Compromise of 1850, further deepened the disagreements and ultimately led to the outbreak of the war.

    • B.

      Southern secession

    • C.

      Attack on Fort Sumter

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the options listed - the election of Lincoln as President, Southern secession, and the attack on Fort Sumter - were short term causes of the war. The election of Lincoln in 1860 was seen as a threat by the Southern states, leading to their decision to secede from the Union. The attack on Fort Sumter in 1861 marked the beginning of the armed conflict between the North and the South. Therefore, all three events played a significant role in the outbreak of the war.

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Crittenden Compromise
    Explanation
    The Crittenden Compromise was a desperate last attempt to avoid war because it was proposed in 1860, just a few months before the outbreak of the American Civil War. It was a series of constitutional amendments that aimed to appease the Southern states by protecting slavery and extending it into the territories. The compromise was ultimately rejected, leading to the secession of several Southern states and the start of the war.
