American Slavery To think that the institution of American Slavery was a good-natured and acceptable act is beyond belief. On the other hand, it has been said that slavery is what made America what it is today. Slavery is a system, which people are treated with no respect and are forced to do hard labor(civilwar). Majority of slaves were African-Americans and many of the children and women were still forced to do harsh labor. When northern America was taken over by the Europeans, there was a shortage of labor.

Slavery was a topic and an issue between the North and South for many years. Many people in the North felt that slavery was immoral. People in the South felt that slavery was not only right but it was necessary. Slaves were treated very inferior. They often lived in small cabins regardless of how many there were.
