The South could not let this happen because their economy depending on slavery. Since the slave masters did not have to pay their workers, everything they sold was 100% profit to the South.

Even though there wouldn’t be an agreement because of those who accepted slavery to happen and a war would end up happening the government could have ended it by agreeing with the northern states, and instead of seeing those who fought for their rights being killed they should have just set laws favoring all citizens, and not letting violence happen and creating a bigger problem.

Meanwhile, their masters enjoyed whipping and mistreating them regardless of their action, but slaves had to endure their feeling and angry in order to survive, and not telling the truth about their masters. Slaveholders would not receive any punishment for murdering or whipping slaves to death when Douglass recalled the master
This is due to the fact that England racked up enormous debt and felt the need to end the Era of Salutatory Effect on the American colonists. Early English colonist’s efforts to protect their freedom is not unlike that of efforts of later American citizens of the south in the Civil war. In the mid-1800s America started to form a more comprised government and began to take rule and bring together all of the colonies. Southern states did not want to adhere whenever the capital said to, though they were expected to do so.
