    We are going to start going over how sectionalism grew in the United States during the 1800s.  Sectionalism is when a person or group is more concerned with their part of the country instead of the good of the whole country.  Many leaders in the 1800s used compromise as a way to keep the country together during the 1800s.  In blog 7, students need to write about an issue that is dividing America in 2015.  Propose a compromise that you would think would bring the country together.  This blog needs to be ten sentences.  This blog is due on 12-11-2015 at 11:59 p.m.
