Slavery degusted northerners. Many people believed Slavery was
morally wrong and wanted to do something about it. The book
Uncle Toms Cabin and the newspaper The Liberator argued how
wrong it was. In this, Slavery was a major cause in the
outbreak of the Civil War.
There were many things that led to the Civil War. One
of which were the Missouri Compromise and the Compromise of
1850 in the Missouri Compromise, Missouri wanted to become a
slave state and northerners demanded something be done. This
made southerners outraged. This was just beginning of the
tension between the North and South. Also, the Compromise of
1850 rose more tension. California wanted to become a free
state and of course south politicians had a hissy fit like
the North did when Missouri wanted to become a slave state.
When California wanted to become a free state, it just made
things worse between the North and South. Now, this would
not have been a problem if not for slavery.
Also many conflicts were brought about because of
slavery. Bleeding Kansas became the catchword for the
escalating violence over slavery. There was bloodshed all
the way to capitol hill. At one point in 1856 congressman
Prestor Brooks of South Carolina entered the nearly empty
Senate chamber and beat Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner
with a cane. Brooks felt that Sumners “Crime Against
Kansas” speech, which verbally attacked Brooks Kinsman had
Warranted the retaliation. This proves how extreme the
tensions between the North and South were. When you have
political heads attacking each other you know youre in
trouble. Also when a few states got the right to be free or
slave this rose tensions even more. Of course the North
