Which statement best describes the events of february 4, 1861? delegates in south carolina met to vote on whether or not to secede from the union. citizens went to the polls to vote for lincoln, douglas, breckinridge, or bell for the presidency. confederate troops fired on fort sumter and forced union soldiers to surrender. delegates from several southern states met to form a new confederate government.

On February 4, 1861, delegates from several Southern states met to form a new confederate government.

In the presidential elections of 1860, the Republicans, led by Abraham Lincoln, supported the prohibition of slavery in all the territories of the United States. The Southern states saw this as a violation of their constitutional rights and as the first step in a grand republican plan to finally abolish slavery. The three candidates in favor of the Union received an overwhelming majority of 82% of the votes at the national level. The Republican Party, dominant in the North, secured a plurality of popular votes and a majority of the electoral votes nationwide, so Lincoln was elected president constitutionally. He was the first candidate of the Republican Party to win the presidency. However, before his inauguration, seven slave states with cotton-based economies (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Texas) declared secession and formed the Confederation on February 4, 1861.

Answer:

D. It protected commercial areas in the south.

With the Union forces responsible for Fort Sumter the north could keep any transportation coming all through Charlestown. Charlestown was essential in the fare of cotton fundamental for the financial survival of the South.

It would be the French and Indian war, and because the American colonists helped the French, it caused the French to help the Americans during the American Revolution. Also, the American Revolution was in 1775, so the first answer of the war of 1823 wouldn't make sense, and also the French revolution was years later as well. The unification of Germany also happened a lot later. 
Hope this helped!
