The slave state of South Carolina had placed themselves in an unusual situation with regards to the number of slaves there in 1860. More than half of South Carolina's population were slaves. If slavery, in the eyes of the white population, was abolished all at once, the white population would be outnumbered. As an aside, when Senator Calhoun from South Carolina saw the "slave problem" he pushed for the annexation of Texas in order to spread the slave population more evenly in the South. This was made easier when he was appointed to be the US Secretary of State.
About 2 million were in the south. Which was 20% of the whole population.
In 1860--the last decennial census before the Civil War--Mississippi and South Carolina had larger slave population than free population. The same was true in 1850. (Note that "free population" is not the same thing as "white population", but that's the data we have).
By 1860 African-Americans accounted for about 4 million slaves on plantations and 250,000 freed blacks in the south
Idont know u tell me
The North had a larger population, AND a large chunk of the population in the South were slaves. In 1860, only white males could vote. Larger population = more votes, which means victory. The person above me is wrong. Our nation's elections are not determined by popular vote, they are determined by the electoral collegngfgnngfhdcsfehgbjgjhvfhgfe. There have been several instances that a president won the election without having the popular vote.
