What happened to the quarrel between north and south over slavery?
those in the North were roused by the books written by Harriet Beecher Stowe. while those in the south were not ready to give up their slaves, Abraham Lincoln, as the president, said that there would no longer be any slavery
The Southerners knew that the North or the Union wanted to abolish slavery. With the growing friction between the South and the North, they threatened to secede if a Republican became president, which happened when Aberham Lincoln became president. The Southerners feared that their rich southern way of life would end.
A series of agreements between the north and south that temporarily dampened the slavery controversy?
The biggest disagreement between the north and the south was slavery. The south wanted slavery but the north did not. the north beleived that slavery was cruel and wrong and in almost all northern states it was illgegal. however the south had very fertile land, perfect for planting crops like tobacco and cotton. they needed slaves to collect and clean these crops and they feared their economy would fail without the free labor from slaves…
The cause of the quarrel was political power in the senate. The South wanted as many slave as free states in the country. In order to do this they had to voilate the Missouri compromise. By doing this they said the Missouri Compromise was unconstitutional. So the south left and became known as the confederacy.
