Discuss the role of the â€œcotton revolutionâ€ and other factors in the expansion and transformation of slavery during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. (CO#1, #5)
Explain slaveryâ€™s influence on national politics and the development of prevailing Northern and Southern views on slavery (CO#4, #5, #6/Gen.Ed. Outcome 4.2)
Slavery grew along with the United States, not just in the number of slaves but in the nature of the institution itself. It underlay the Southâ€™s wealth and to a great degree formed the Southâ€™s political and social identity. The â€œcotton revolutionâ€ enabled the expansion of slavery westwards and the same time that the Northern states abolished it within their borders. The nationâ€™s westward expansion soon confronted the United States with several political controversies that reinforced sectional differences.
