Because certain parts of the American population found it difficult to acclimate themselves to performing hard labor personally. The South's economic downturn after the Civil War, while partially justified by the conflict, is a true testament to their inability to perform and the source of their passion for having held onto slavery as long as they did.

How long did slavery last?

Slavery existed in Biblical times.... and still continues. In the UK, slavery was abolished in 1833, and came in in the early 1600s, so was around for roughly 200 years. In the US, slavery lasted from 1619 to 1865, which is 246 years. However, in the case of the United States, it is important to note the existence of the sharecropping system, which essentially entrenched African Americans in subservient, farming roles for much of the Reconstruction era and beyond. This practice continued until the end of Reconstruction, in 1877.
