Why Didn’t the North Have Slaves?

The historical events that led to the Civil War are not simple nor interpreted the same by historians and conspiracies abound. In the United States, during the 1800’s, the economy of the North differed vastly from that of the South. The South had many large agricultural plantations that prospered through the use of slaves while the North had small farms and industries they felt needed no slave labor. Suellen Ocean is the author of the Civil War Era Historic Romance, Black Pansy. Available in print from Amazon and in a variety of formats, including computer:

Why Didn’t Colonial Slavery Reach the West?

During the 1800’s, the United States spread across North America creating new territories. The South’s economy was based on plantations. A great many of those plantations used slaves to do the labor. The South wanted any future and newly acquired territories to accept slavery. In Congress and the Senate, the new territory representatives would have represented anti-slavery and voted contrary to the South. The South therefore, felt it necessary to secede. The Civil War broke out in 1862. Suellen Ocean is the author of the Civil War Era Historical Romance, Black Pansy. Available in print from Amazon and in a variety of formats, including computer:

What Does Queen Mean? How About Queen Mother? Queen Consort?

If a woman is a wife of a king, she is a “queen consort”. If she is a ruling queen, she is a “queen regnant”. If she is the widow of a king, she is a “queen dowager”. If a queen has a son or daughter who is either a king or queen, the mother is called “queen mother”. Suellen Ocean is the author of the historic novel The Celtic Prince.

What Does Antebellum Mean?

There are many who reminisce fondly of the days of plantations. Today, the large plantation homes are tourist destinations. The skill that went into building them fascinates all who visit. Unfortunately, most of these grand homes were built by slaves during the 1700s and 1800s. Antebellum means “before the Civil War.”

Why Is He Called, the “Prince of Wales”?

Why would the Prince of Britain be called the Prince of Wales? Well… back in 1301, King Edward had a son whom he named Edward and he was given this title. His father, King Edward had done a lot of conquering so he may have been trying to appeal to the sentimentality of the Welsh.
