The Antebellum Era 2
ANTEBELLUM PERIOD
Introduction
American the antebellum era was amongst the eras they had a many influence and effects
on the delivery of the modern-day union of the United States of America. This period was very
vital as it brought the history of the US at a closer look at economical as well as political chaos
and mayhem that branded it. Ayers (2003) defined the antebellum as a Latin word that is
commonly used to refer to the time before the civil war, which took place between the years
1861 and the year 1865 (Ayers, 2003). This period was characterized by infinite numbers of
events that eradication of protest movement, development of the economy in southern and
northern parts, and expansion of the spirit reforms. These events were led to the emergence and
the growth of political pressures in the north and south. Besides, the same events led to
anticipations of civil war. Subsequently, the year 1812 was marked as the independence of the
modern-day Sovereign States from the British Empire. After that, a mission and a vision to
create stronger states with an expanded economic foundation which was established under
industrial and agriculture activities (Baker and Grant, 2002).
Consequently, this led to the rise of slavery, which was brought by mercantile and trade
ships. The slaves' business intensified and heightened an intense debate that led to an increase of
conflicts between the societies of north and south. Even though the slavery business was being
deliberated as an epicenter of the confrontation after the liberation from the British Empire, the
fundamental cause was the economic differences and interests. This paper sets to Analyze and
Discuss the extent to which slavery informed the political landscape in America during the
antebellum era.

of the massive number of immigrants. The immigrants brought with them the new skills which
were applied in agricultural as well in industries. They focused on significant scale activities,
which ultimately lay the foundation of the modern-day sovereign states (Kornblith, 2003).
Additionally, the lands in the south were believed to be fertile, and thus there was the availability
of cheap and free labor from the slavery business. This led to the growth and expansion of
agriculture, which formed a more robust economic sustenance of the southern states of America.
On the other hand, the northern area was prospering in urban development,
industrialization as well as scientific invention as its economic lifeline. Nonetheless, the north
part was not famous in the slavery trade. Additionally, the political heats were the ones that
formed a sociopolitical transformation and dissimilarities towards the outbreak of civil war in
1812 (Baker and Grant, 2002).
As discussed formerly, it is clear that the southern and the northern had not developed at
the same level during the colonization and after liberation. After that, it was clear that the
economic differences gave rise to the civil war (Copeland, 2003). They both fought to gain
power and influence on economic and political issues, which repeatedly stemmed from frenzied
debates in congress. The conflict between the two sides was, of course, instigated by the
