Chapter Thirteen: Slavery in America
Learn how and why slavery grew so rapidly in America during the Antebellum Period, roughly from the late 1700's to the opening volleys of the Civil War in April, 1861. Discover why every plan to stop it with the force of law, and every compromise to slow it down, were equally doomed to failure by the social, political, economic, and cultural realities and limitations of the day. Hear how the wretched institution became a millstone around the neck of the Nation, drawing the country inexorably into the bloody and insatiable maw of Civil War in spite of every attempt to prevent that disastrous outcome.
