What happen to the institution of slavery as slaves became more valuable and as northern oppositon to slavery grew more vocal?
South Carolina seceded because they believed that the institution of slavery was in peril. I believe the Civil War was about states rights - that is, the states rights to maintain slavery. South Carolina was complaining about the northern states violating the Constitution by not enforcing the Fugitive Slave Act. The union felt that South Carolina was independent and did not want slavery so now they are in war.
Prior to the institution of slavery, there was no such thing as "blacks" free or otherwise. When slaves were first shipped here from Africa, this land was not yet the United States of America. So, there was no effect. The Emancipation Proclamation signed by Abraham Lincoln instituted freedom for slaves and affected different sections of the USA, primarily the South and the North. The South being pro-slavery/anti-emancipation and the North being anti-slavery/pro-emancipation.
If the US had given up the war to keep the USA a united nation, meaning that the Confederate states won their independence, it's unlikely that slavery would have continued very much longer. It was an institution that inhibited industrial growth which would have been a goal of the new South. It was an uneconomical institution, and most historians have stated that slavery's time in the South would be aborted for economic and political reasons.
because the North wanted the south to stop slavery and the south did not so they declared war. ANSWER The Northerner People fought to restore the Union and abolish the slavery.

It probably was accepted because the Christian world did not speak out openly against it. And during this period of our American history, it was not clearly understood about the negative aspects, that was to come out of slavery. Slavery and the issues that it brought up were huge....... When something is institutionalized…
Slavery in the South was it's economic backbone... and while most white people in the South didn't have slaves -- never the less-- most got some type of income from the institution of slavery. It is also important to remember: Slavery was a way of life for the Southern people and people do not normally like change, especially if someone else is trying to force it down their throat.
