    We are studying how the country divided over certain issues. We have learned that political parties have disagreed with each other since the days of the Founding Fathers. We are leading up to how the country split during the Civil War. The first state to secede was South Carolina after the election of 1860. The country was torn apart by sectionalism.  Write 8 sentences about an issue that you think is dividing our country today. What are the issues that political parties are fighting over to get votes? Remember to edit your writing. Some of you are losing points due to not editing.
