Slavery Slavery was a big issue during the years of 1820 through 1850 for various reasons Most people ignored the fact of slavery being an important issue and just left it without changing anything Slavery was not changed for reasons which would have corrupted the country in some cases to the worst In the early 1800s slavery started accumulating in America mostly because of agricultural and industrial needs The slavery population exceeded from one million to double that amount in a matter of ten years Some of the reasons why slavery was not abolished any earlier was because of cultural political and religious standings and acts In the South farmers and owners of plantations would have their slaves work day and night sometimes to clean cotton Normally one slave would clean one pound of cotton a day Once everyone heard of Eli Witneys invention of the cotton gin farmers found out they could clean ten times the amount they normally did in a day sell these hundreds and thousands of pounds cleaned resulting in profiting much more than they ever imagined Having this in mind farmers were buying more slaves to work on plantations They thought paying a thousand pounds for the purchase of a slave would pay off so easily that the amounts of slaves were accumulating by the day on plantations The South was producing most of the cotton that was being sold around the world and if they were to lose their slaves then they would lose everything they owned as well If they were to employ white people to do the slaves jobs they would have to pay them a monthly wage Because of this having black slaves was comfortable for them since they only had to pay one sum of money which would pay off in a matter of days Other people in the South kept slaves because it was said to be honorable
