        I would say its easily slavery happened out of economic sense, the fact that they used blacks had to do with racism, so i guess the answer would be the use of African slaves was the result of racist feelings that white europeans were superior to their African counterparts.

            Was the abolition of slavery necessary to help the union win the war? Did the ending of slavery help to unite the northern states, increase military enrollment with newly freed slaves enlisting in the union armies, or did it jeopardize the war by possibly ending relationships with the border states?

                Personally I believed that the africans were only used because economically it made the most sense at the time. I mean the only other options were really natives or indentured servants. While the initial transportation would be very expensive, it would make the most sense in the long run. The natives would be a poor choice because they would be very hard to contain and be hard to kept under control for generations. The servants had to be let free after a certain amount of year. Africans would be able to reproduce for generations and they would not be very rebellious at all. Once the Africans were installed as slaves, people just began to think og them as a lower class, which led to all blackskinned humans being thought of as a lower class

                  You could also do something on the fact that before the Civil War, there was nothing in the constitution that said a state or states could not leave the union. The Northern states refused to abide the by the fugitive slave act(good thing obviously), thus actually going against the constitution. It would be like states without the death penalty refusing to send fugitives back to states with the death penalty. It would be against the constitution. You could argue something on that, although it might be a touchy subject, and you could end up looking like a redneck racist if you did it wrong.

                    You could also talk about the "missing clause" that Jefferson "forgot" to put in the constitution that would infact free the slaves and make blacks equal. THere is a lot you could right about that.

                        okay, i think i have an idea about wat to write about if i was to write about slavery

                        how about a topic about American Associations? anybody haev a topic off that.... its pretty broad topic but wat we talked about is how americans tend to make associations instead of doing things individually....

                          There still isn't.

                          You could write about popular sovereignity. Was popular sovereignity effective? Was it justified in indirectly allowing slavery under the auspices of freedom of choice for the inhabitants?

                          Then there's Dred Scott, John Brown (oooh, fun), Bleeding Kansas, and the Missouri Compromise. This stuff is all before the war. Afterwards, the main issue is pretty much Reconstruction.

                              I know. I was just trying to say it from a "historical" standpoint.

                                Propaganda, there have been no studies that have shown a legitimate link between second hand smoke and lung cancer.

                                Edit: Rather, the studies that have shown a link have been called into question in recent years.
