The Reason Why Compromise on the Spread of Slavery Was Possible In 1850 and Not Reached In 1861
Slavery is a system in which humans are owned as a form of property and are in total control of another person. It revolves from one generation to another with complete deprivation and constraint of persons; the master could use them in any way he pleased and dispose of the at will. In the 1800s, most of this was of African origin that worked in the southern part of the United States with less population and had many plantations thus requiring manpower which was provided by slaves. Slavery was made possible by it seem humane, normal and legitimate. The 1850s saw the rapid extension of democracy and a need to free the enslaved, a revolt had already succeeded in Haiti (Catherine, 2010). 1850 saw the enacting of the Fugitive Slave Act which was meant to be in a bid to emphasize on the property rights but faced rebellion from the Northerners and reclaim fugitive slaves. These persons were denied a chance to defend themselves in the reasons for their freedom and right to exercise their rights.
The division between the south and the north with the latter’s increased population meant that the parties would lose sits in the senate and saw a compromise was met on how the parties would have to renounce slavery. This was not met politely as there was disagreement over some persons support for the federal slave code in a Charleston convention there was an argument Luerence Keitt condemning slavery and insisting on equality of all irrespective of their race completely opposing the aspects and theories of the south on white superiority. The Senate’s division was rampant and was then faced with an obvious war and volition of evil upon fellow men.
The Republican Party was formed in a bid to support the 1950 act as some of the members’ democrats would find themselves in chains again. They celebrated free labor and put emphasis on the agricultural success that had been established form such. And disassociated the aspects of the Catholics and were even part of the Protestants which were in the likeness of its leaders being patriotic. The civil war between the two halves of the Americas came up with a Missouri Compromise which was, in essence, the slave state with the majority of the persons being slaves. It was to expand the slave territories and improve the productivity. Columbia banned the sale of slaves in the same compromise. This compromise spread out to the various states such as Kansas. The industrial revolution saw machines coming up with the lack of use of slaves as they were faster. The Democratic Party is the main aspect of avoiding abolitionists who wanted to have a say and have less slavery and the upkeep of human rights and the freedom of all persons.
In 1854 slavery was renewed in the banned territories facing a revolution. In 1861, Abraham Lincon denounced the spread of slavery which did not go well with the southern democrats. Slavery was validated as it was in the constitution which is among the most treasured statutes in America (Wallace, 2010). Boston was seen as the Freemans town as the fugitives had been allocated that particular state away from all others and the ex-slaves staged protests and strikes from their workplaces in a quest to be heard.
Slavery was finally abolished in the 1890s but the Americans accepted the different races and unity in the 1950s. It had not been easy for such racial discrimination to be abolished over the years due to the differences which had developed of slavery. Therefore, although slavery was officially abolished in 1890’s discrimination was persistent up-to-date and although it’s being faces out and there is equal opportunity for the white and blacks.
