  The s was a pivotal decade in the 19th century. In the United States, tensions over the institution of slavery became prominent and dramatic events hastened the nation's movement towards civil war. In Europe, new technology was celebrated and the great powers fought the Crimean War. The United States even proved to be willing to go to war to secure new territories.
