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:
