From the Paper:

"As it pertains to freedom, one of the outcomes of the Civil War was the abolishment of slavery. Slavery had already been abolished in the North and the war also gave slaves in the south their freedom. Proceeding the Civil war America experienced a great deal of growth. Much of this growth came from the sell and trade of cotton (Mcpherson 6). Not only was the cotton trade beneficial to the American South and New England but it also benefited the economies of England. The profitability of cotton made the abolition of slavery extremely difficult (Mcpherson 6). However, those in the North and Many in the South were appalled by the institution of slavery. There were fears that the succession of the southern states would further isolate t hat region of the country and slavery would never end."
