Hello, 

Southern republicanism was tightly grounded in the master-slave relationship including the defense of liberty, independence, and rejectio of the majority. On the other hand, Norther republicanism focused on free soil and personal honor (which played a significant role in creating southern republicanism). Southerners believed that the government refused to give slaveholders their equity due to Wilmot and Taylor plan to admit California as a free state.

Thank you and come again.
