How accurate are they? a. Part of the regional tensions were due the northern delegates wanting to end slavery and the southern delegates wanting to increase slavery .Mason of Virginia was against slavery, he felt the government should have more power over slavery. His predictions are pretty accurate. Ellsworth from Connecticut considered in moral light, ought to free those already in the country.
The North saw the issue of slavery as an evil. They believed that slavery was an impurity that became accustomed to life in America, in which made other systems of commerce forgotten. In a nation where freedom and equality is given, the property owning of people is wrong. In Hinton Helper’s “The Impending Crisis,” Hinton stresses the economic effects of slavery to the U.S. He goes on suggesting that the U.S cannot depend on only slavery and the staple crops to pull the nation forward.
The primary motivation for the secession of the southern states was their belief that their rights given to them under the constitution were being taken away by the northern controlled federal government and the new regionally dominated Republican Party. Many argue that the main reason the South seceded from the union was only over the issue of slavery. The South thought that the new Republican Party and the newly elected president, President Lincoln, were going to abolish slavery in the South. Although this may be, for the most part true, it is not the sole reason for the South’s decision to secede. The four states that seceded later in 1861, had at first voted against secession on the sole basis over the issue of slavery.
The Articles of Confederation were created as a new central government form after the American Revolution. The Articles still consisted of problems, specifically financial ones. Hamilton proposed a plan that would put U.S. finances on a stable foundation. He planned to lower national debt and strengthen the national credit because he believed that "a national debt was a national blessing". However, some people, such as Jefferson and small farmers opposed his ideas, because they believed in states' rights and a strict interpretation of the constitution, which led to the split of two different political parties.
Not because of the morality of it all but because he didn’t want the south to maintain more power. Tallmadge came up with an Amendment called, “The Tallmadge Amendment”in which it stated no slavery allowed to incoming states. This was quickly refuted by Thomas’ plan. Thomas had a different idea for what to do about Missouri. Instead of abolitioing slavery and ultimately giving the north more power, he made a compromise.
While there was no absolute even ground in the fairness of taxation in the rebellious states, Northerners realized their faults in tax legislation, thus developing a more lenient system capable of allowing the southern economy to strengthen and flourish. Until the Civil War in 1861, the United States federal government was financed by tariffs. There were continuing complaints from the rural states that the tariffs were helping protect the industries of the Northeast. Tariffs were reduced in 1846 and again in 1857, but raised once more in 1860. The solution to tariffs was obviously unconstitutional federal taxation of personal incomes, corporate income and inheritances; in addition to excises on manufactures, alcohol and tobacco, and creation of the Internal Revenue Service to commence collections in 1863 .
Slavery was seen as a moral abomination in the North and as a way of life in the South. Northern reformers and wanted to abolish slavery, while Southerners were devoted to its preservation. The northern and southern states had created an equal balance between free and slave states to prevent the opposing side from gaining too much power. When Missouri applied for admission to the union as a slave state in 1819, the delicate balance between the two regions was threatened. Missouri admission a slave state would make it the 12th slave state and would thrust slavery farther north.
After being freed from slavery in 1863 African Americans needed to adjust to society. After being in slavery for hundreds of years African Americans only knew how to farm and serve other people. It was challenging for black people to make changes; African Americans improved their position in southern society economically, socially and politically between the years of 1865-1877. Confederates did not want slavery to end. They did anything possible to stop African Americans from having rights in the south.
For many reasons, the South did not like what the constitution said. There were many conflicts with the compromise of 1850, map shown in (Document A) and the fugitive slave act. Certain northerners were so against slavery and the fugitive slave act that they even posted warnings for the slaves. Kidnappers were being sent after the slaves, and how Northern abolitionists were revolting against the South's rules and regulations this fugitive slave act also helped drive the tension deeper into the Un-United States. (Document C) A frees soiler did not want to spread slavery, but he is okay with keeping it in a state it is already in.
After such events, historians have discussed if such removal should have taken place or not. With the evidence presented in book of the Discovering the American Past it can be concluded that the Cherokee civilization should have been removed from their homeland because it impeded the economic and social development of the United States. Furthermore, removal served as the best alternative to the Cherokee people because it guaranteed their protection against the United States. There are three fundamental reasons of why the Cherokee removal worked out as the best decision to both sides. First of all, the lack of knowledge from the Cherokee people to cultivate their land and find gold frustrated the economic growth of the United States.
