If a slave owner beat a slave to death, the owner.... would suffer no penalty.
When the Declaration of Independence was written.... it did not mention slavery because that would have angered many, especially in Southern states.
The writers of US Constitution in 1787 said that... the importing of slaves from outside the US could be stopped in 20 years.
The Missouri Compromise... kept the balance between slave states and free states; drew a line showing where there could and could not be future slave states; brought Missouri into the Union; brought Maine into the Union.
The concept of "popular sovereignty" meant that... the people of new states could vote whether to be slaves or free.
Personal liberty laws... were passed in many Northern states to guarantee freedom to ex slaves.
The Dred Scott case said that... if a slave was brought to a "free" state, they were still a slave and the whole "slave state" and "free state" thing was rather meaningless.
When Abraham Lincoln ran for president... he pledged to work to end the spread of slavery to new states.
The American Civil War... lasted for about 4 years; started with a string of Union defeats on the batterfield; saw a large percentage of young, white Southern men killed and ended in 1865.
