You pretty much just restated the question but it is by far the best I have read. You need to try to say the same thing with different words. Make it your own statement.
Leading to the Civil War slavery was the basis of the opposition between the north and south and they came to view slavery differently because both were inspired to their beliefs by the economy which brought about their moral beliefs.
The issue with
slavery was really its expansion into the territories. The North was not actually trying to free the slaves in the South. They just didn’t want the institution to spread hoping that by eliminating the number of slave states that the South would eventually end slavery themselves. The South feared that with every new free state that the life of slavery was closer to an end.
Northern abolitionists felt that slavery was evil. Fugitive Slave laws caused many northerners to become abolitionists because of how they saw runaway slaves being taken back to the south. (Doc C) It also imposed high penalties for people who tried to help runaway slaves in the Underground Railroad. Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet
Beecher Stowe opened the eyes of northerners to the peculiar institution. (Doc H)
Some felt that it was religiously wrong. (Doc D) The American Colonization Society wanted to deport the Africans to Africa. It was a competition between northern blacks and whites for jobs and there would be a lot more available if slavery was abolished or if they were deported altogether. Many people also thought that slavery went against the constitution which was based on equality and rights of man. (Doc F) We fought for independence then turned around and enslaved other people.
Way too much just referring to the documents.
