Why did people in the South believe in slavery?
well...i think they believe that cuz they liked doughnut...the loved doughnuts liked liked =] liked
Most people in the north did not believe that slavery was right and people in the south disagreed and it became a controversy of whether slavery is right or not, so the north and south fought each other to resolve the conflict.
the south didn't,don't believe me watch Ruby Bridges.
Northerners did not believe in slavery, but southerners did. It was the southerners who kept slavery in the south.
I believe you are a bit mixed up. The South wanted slavery.
They were fighting because the north didn't believe in slavery and the south did. So the south got angry because the north was trying to banned slavery from all of the states. That is why we had the Civil War.
If you believe in equal rights, the South was. If you believe in justice, the North was. Many people think that was on slavery. It wasn't! It started when the South didn't like state's rights and when they decided they wanted to secede from the U.S.
Most people mistaking believe that the Union declared war on the South because of slavery. This was not true until the war was ending, and the Union thought that slavery was the South's inspiration to fight. The North declared war on the South to preserve the Union.
How did most new jerseyans differ in their beliefs about slavery from people who lived in the south?
Depends on the time period. Most people in the north started to believe that slavery was unneeded, and eventually that it was wrong. Many people in the south believed the same thing, but they also had a lot of land they had to care for. And some on both sides believed it was their right.
The South believed that slavery wasn't a bad thing, but Uncle Tom's Cabin screamed the opposite. Northerners began to believe that slavery was horrible after reading the book. The South was angry and didn't want to listen to the North's cries to end slavery. Because it aroused Abolitionist sentment in the North, and encouraged people to try to smuggle slaves into Canada.
they wanted to keep slavery
The north didn't believe in it
In the North and South.
North was against slavery, and south wanted more slavery. south wanted more slavery so they could work on the cotton fields. if more people work on cotton fields the south would have more money.
The conductors of the underground railroad helped enslaved people escape mostly because they did not believe in the idea of slavery. The conductors used their homes and businesses to hide those people that were fleeing from the South because of slavery, before, during, and even after the Civil War.
Mostly people in the South and people who were pro-slavery as Lincoln wished (and did) abolish slavery.
When Lincoln was elected, the south was threatened because they new he planned to abolish slavery. Many people in the south profited off of slavery.
By 1861, it is clear that most people in the Northern non slave US States believe that slavery is immoral. By the same year many not most, of the people in the Southern States believe that slavery is not immoral.
The North was heavily against slavery and wanted to abolish it. The South wanted slavery so that they had people to work their farms.
people are lazy
The north did not believe in slavery while the south did. The south also had huge plantations that were hard to take care of so in their eyes slavery was a good thing because it was helping them in a way. Hope I helped! :)
Something thatAbraham Lincoln did that was strong and wise was that he stopped most slavery in the Unites States of America. Although the Americans were free of slavery after Abraham Lincoln stopped most slavery in America, the South part of America argued about slavery. They wanted to keep slavery. So Abraham Lincoln made more and more speeches about important things, and slavery. Then eventually he got a lot of people to believe him and stop… Read More
yes Georgia is southern
Before the US Civil War even many sound minded people in the North disagreed with the anti slavery abolitionists about slavery in the South. It should be noted here that even well into the US Civil War, slavery was lawful in the US State of Maryland and in Washington DC. For the most part the abolitionists wanted slavery to be abolished in the USA. Many people against slavery only wanted it to be contained in… Read More
Why did some white people in the south believe that their liberty required the continuation of slavery?
there was only one reason the white people of the south believed that their liberty required the continuation of slavery. They truly thought that the African's greatest potential in existence was to serve and work for the white man. They compared Africans to animals and thought it was ridiculous if either one could have freedom to work and live a similar life as them.
He answered his request to help the black people and stop slavery. God the not believe in slavery.
the constitution made people basicly think about slavery. it made people in the north want to ban slavery but the south did NOT want to
Pro-slavery people seceded. South Carolina was the first state to secede in 1860.
Most historians believe that the Georgia and South Carolina would not have signed the US Constitution if it called for the abolishment of slavery. Their economies and cultures were far too deeply involved in slavery as an institution.
They were the abolitionists.
they needed people to work on plantations
To Lincoln, eliminating slavery was not important. He did not believe it was right, but if the south never succeeded there would not be a lot done about slavery when he was in office. When the south succeeded, he began the war to keep the Union together. 2nd answer: Errr, I think that would be "Seceded". :-)
Slavery had a huge impact on American society, and it still has. Especially in the South of America was a lot of slavery. Black people were seen as inferior and white people really thought they were not capable of thinking. During the Civil War, the North was against slavery and the South wasn't. Many people died to fight for the abolishment of slavery. Finally slavery was abolished and black people were free. However, blacks were… Read More
The Radical Republicans believed in the abolishment of slavery and the protection of the rights of Freedmen in the South.
The people in power in the south were making money out of slavery.
there reaction to slavery was that the south was horrible that they kept slaves and slavery was a sin in gods eye's
The abolitionists believed that slavery was a sin as every person was equal and that it was the moral obligation for American's to free the people of slavery.
so many people tried to stop slavery like the north but the people in the south didnt want slavery to end so it then took them 200 years for the slavery to finnaly end
No, Mormons do not believe in slavery.
Originally cause of the civil war was not over the issue of slavery as most people believe, the original cause was to preserve the Union. But England who at that time still relied heavily on the South to provide the cotton for their textile industry was teetering on the brink of aiding the South. So after the Battle of Antietam Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation which stated that the war was to eliminate slavery… Read More
Many people believe that the "War Between The States," or as it's incorrectly called "The Civil War" was fought over the issue of slavery. This is untrue. Many political activists would like the use the false reason of slavery to condemn The South for attempting to establish their own government, not many of them will admit the truth that Lincoln himself was quoted saying "I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the… Read More
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.
They believed in slavery and killing people if you sleeped with someones wife
Skinheads believe in white supremacy, and carry the flag as a representation of the slavery that existed for black people in the south before and during the Civil War./// For the sake of truth it should be stated that slavery also existed in several of the"Northern" states in the years before the War.
The Civil War, depsite what most people believe, was not started over slavery. It was actually started over the election of the the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Slavery only played a part of the role in the Civil War. Slavery affected the Civil War because many slaves came in to help the South win the Battle, which did not help. In the end the Civil War basically ended slavery, or abolished… Read More
People still do believe in segregation today some even think slavery should be brought back the idiots.
because people from the south did not like him the wanted slavery Abraham Lincoln did not allow slavery in America
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. The Southerner people fought for the Southern Independence, the Rights of the States and to preserve the "Peculiar Institution"
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.
yes they did believe in slavery <3
no they are not because in 1800s the south fought with the north over slavery
