Abraham Lincoln - Cooperative Biography

In the North, the economies were sustained through industries, while the Southern states economies were sustained through agriculture. Because the Southern states most common crop was cotton, which required lots of labor(slaves), the abolition of slavery meant a loss in economic wages. The people in the southern states were not happy about the election of President Lincoln because of his political agenda(abolition of slavery) which would affect their economic well-being, which is when South Carolina issued the “Declaration of the Causes of Secession.” The issuing of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 by Abraham Lincoln, proclaimed the freedom of slaves in ten states, freeing more than 3 million slaves. This freedom allowed the “freemen” the ability to join the paid services of the United States forces. Joining in the Civil War, the North was now fighting to create a new Union without slavery. By the end of the war, about 180,000 African Americans served in the Union Army and 18,000 served in the Navy. This movement did not abolish slavery, but it encourage the idea of change in the right direction.
