  • Slavery played a role in causing the civil war. The South's economy depended on slavery and the North didn't need slavery at all and was predominantly made of abolitionists who were determined to end slavery. Slavery played a role on who had more power in Congress. If there were more slave states, slave states would have more power. If there were more free states, free states would have more power. Southern states wanted slavery to spread while Northern states wanted slavery to stay in the south so the North would have more power
  • I think slavery should spread so then the South can have more power and the North won't get to powerful. The government has no right to take away m right to own a slave in my state of North Carilona
  • I'm a northerner and I think slavery should stay in the south.
  • The Dred Scott case was a event that helped the argument over slavery to intensify. Dred Scott was a slave, his master frequently took Scott with him to free territory. Scott's master died and he sued his master's family for his freedom. At the time, it was very common for a slave to sue for his/her freedom. But eventually the case went to the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court ruled that Scott was still slave and could not sue since he was not considered a citizen. This made abolitionists furious and caused tensions between the North and South to grow
  • The South believed that the state government should decide on decisions concerning their state not the national government while the North believed in a more Federal form of government. Sectionalism was apart of State's rights too, since most Southerners believed that they were a Southerner first and a American second. Georgia was involved with deciding to secede from the Union. Many Georgians didn't want to secede while others thought it was necessary to secede. In the end the General Assembly voted to secede from the Union.
  • Congress needs to stay out of my states business and let us be able to decide whether or not we should have slaves.
  • Even though there was a lot of tension between the North and the South the government made compromises that soothed tension between the two side for some time. One of those compromises was the Missouri Compromise. The Missouri Compromise split Massachusetts in half, now forming the state of Maine, and Missouri ended up becoming a slave state and stated all states north of a certain line were free states and all states below the line were slave states. The Missouri Compromise was later repealed when the Kansas- Nebraska Act was passed. The Kansas Nebraska Act allowed territories becoming states decide whether or not they will become a free or slave states. This angered many Southerners so Congress passed the Fugitive Slave Act which allowed slave owners to take back slaves that had run away to the North.
  • At least with the Missouri Compromise, there is the Fugitive Slave Act that can be used to track down former slaves
  • Georgia supported the Kansas Nebraska Act since it was a slave state and the Fugitive Slave Act would be put in place with it.
  • As a Representative from the state of Georgia, I think we should pass the Kansas Nebraska Act
  • The election of 1860 was the final breaking point and caused the South to finally secede. The south was so outraged that a Republican candidate had (Abe Lincoln) won the war that it seceded. The South feared that with a Republican in office they would lose their right to own slaves
  • The South has sadly rebelled due to the grim system known as slavery.
