Slavery was a very divisive and controversial issue throughout the country during the antebellum period. For most of the new country of the United States, the spread of slavery was highly contested and debated. Most Americans disagreed with the practice of slavery, but many did not think emancipation was the answer. However, in 1852, Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote a narrative describing the evils and malpractices of slavery. This novel changed the public opinion of forced servitude which ultimately had a significant effect on the already sectionalist nation.

The central issue was slavery like the French politician Alexis de Tocqueville had observed, “…almost all the differences which may be noticed between the character of the Americans in the Southern and Northern states have originated in slavery” (Rourk et al, 2009, p. 437). Politicians tried hard to reconcile the differences between the North and the South with several compromises but they were unsuccessful to prevent further conflict that would lead up to the war. Thus, the Civil War was inevitable. Shortly after the American Revolution, the North and South developed different economies. The North went through a transition from hand-made to machine-made production of goods.
