The rise of chattel slavery meant that slaves could be bought and sold as property and any children the slaves had could become property too. As Lincoln stated in his inaugural address, one-eighth of the American population were coloured slaves that were localised in The South which had particular and powerful interests.All knew that these interests were somehow the cause of the war.
From December 1860, South Carolina succeeded from The Union and so this began the conflict between The North and The South. The war was a result of conflicting ideological, cultural and economic ideas between both regions.
Arguably the general consensus is that slavery was the primary cause of the civil war.
Scott's strategies was to press the South gradually, without needing to truly mount a crucial attack of the South.
This objective was grounded strictly in the conviction that the Constitution ensured servitude, yet the Union had denied that privilege.
Instead, manufacturing was the booming industry in this region and goods were made with machines instead of being grown.
Crops and raw materials were taken and turned into something more valuable and so The North didn’t need to rely as much on slave labour, instead immigrants were recruited to work in factories.
Southerners, thus, had the privilege to withdraw as it was the best way to guard their entitlement to possess slaves and their faith in states' rights.
Their activities, hence, were cautious as they had no selection however withdrawal due to the severe legislative issues of the North.
This objective was grounded solidly in the conviction that the South had no privilege to withdraw from the Union and that severance was treasonous and supreme to a demonstration of war against the Union.
Their activities, consequently, were guarded as they had no option except to call for troops after the terminating of Fort Sumter.
