Asked in US Civil WarSlavery
Why did it take 246 years to end slavery?

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.
