It seems from a broader point of view that the North has gone through so much just for the Southern states of America to exist. It only makes sense that Northern leaders would feel angry and betrayed by hearing that those states that they have worked so hard to establish now want their own sense of independence. At the same time however, the South had more of a need for slaves than the north did. The agricultural part of the South employed slaves to tend the large plantations and perform other duties. Slavery was a natural part of the Southern economy even though very few of the population actually owned slaves.
The war did not erupt in 1820 because a compromise was reached. The Missouri Compromise was a deal stuck by both sides of Congress, at this time the clear distinction between North and South had not been so prevalent, but this issue about the expansion of slavery was making bold lines in the sand. The Compromise of 1820 was about the extension of slavery and how it should not pass the 36°30’ north line in the Louisiana Territory, Congress wanted to keep the number of slave
A slave was treated like property and not like a Human Being and owned by other Human Being's. Many people believed Slavery was morally wrong and wanted to do something about it. Granville Sharp was one of the first and greatest campaigners against slavery. He did not manage to abolish the slave trade but still was able to turn the public’s opinion against slavery. He also believed that slavery was sinful and against some religions.
Without it, the work would not have gotten done, or as quickly as it did. As ugly as it is to say, without the forced labor, the United States might not be the United States. The massive production of cotton propelled the United States to becoming a world power. With this crop, the United States was able to breakaway from the Crown: all thanks to slavery. Americans, North and South, both supported slavery.
The North with all the industrial business had a total different way of life and can see how they totally disagreed with the way slaves were being used and treated. As said in political objective section Lincoln wanted a military victory prior to announcing the emancipation proclamation because he knew it would cause many more problems. Lincoln’s impatience and no military experience did render him from making better decisions which could have ended the war earlier and with less deaths and injuries. With the north controlling most of the railroads and weapons they had a huge advantage over the south, if he could have been a little more patient and trained his men properly could also have ended this much earlier. With the number of personnel the rebels had vs union was little to none, they held off the north by smart tactics of well-trained officers.
Historical Analysis of Olaudah Equiano’s “From the Interesting Narrative of Olaudah Equiano” Ashley Williams History 193 Professor Bravo February 7, 2014 Olaudah Equiano was an African American that fell into slavery. He was forced like many other African Americans during the 17th and 18th century. In the short story about Olaudah Equiano, it tells about his life and what he went through being a slave. First, there was a lot of trading or bartering going on with the white slave owners. They would use their slaves as a material item and not think of them as a person.
By 1830 the South tended to champion, states rights doctrines as a defensive against the North. As the South recognized that control of the government was slipping away, it turned to a states' rights argument to protect slavery. Southerners stated that the federal government was not permitted to interfere with slavery in those states where it already existed. They felt that this interpretation of the Constitution associated with nullification, or perhaps secession would protect their way of life. Slavery contributed to the start of the Civil War as its proposed abolition was seen as a threat to the sovereignty of many Southern states.
On order to capitalise on this new process, the south needed lots of cheap labour, and found it in the form of slaves. As the Northern climate could not support the cotton plant, the Northern and Southern economy began to grow apart, until they were extremely different, with the Northern economy focussing on industrialisation, and the Southern economy remaining as an agricultural economy. This meant that they had different goals when it came to their economy, and that different things would benefit them. In particular, they clashed over import taxes
Simon Legree, the novel’s antagonist slave driver, became the archetypal Southern figure for whom Northerners felt much contempt. Northerners, relying much more on industry than agriculture, had for a long time been against slavery as a violation of human rights and as a waning economic practice overdue to become obsolete in the United States. Uncle Tom’s Cabin intensified these ideas through its emotional portrayal of black slaves as sufferers to evil white men.
Southerners argued that slavery was not the cause of the war, but there were many people who said otherwise. First and foremost, Southerners claimed that the main cause of the Civil War was the broken economy, and that it was to fix the government and unite all states. However many past politicians and modern historians say that this was not true and claim that slavery was the main cause. A British scholar in 1953 described that slavery was a major cause for the Civil War because both sides were in conflict on what to do with slavery. There was actually a debate held in Kansas that erupted in violence over South Carolina Representative, Preston Brooks, and Massachusetts Senator, Charles Sumner, because Sumner had disapproved Brook’s relative, Senator Andrew Butler’s, proslavery views.
