Did the Declaration of Independence really stand for “liberty for all”? In the years leading up to the Civil War, both the abolitionists and the pro-slavery parties had to ask themselves this question about our founding documents. In this video, scholars explain how most of the Founders believed that slavery would die out but then cotton became an extremely lucrative crop in the South. The cotton trade depended on slavery, so the Antebellum Southern politicians developed new pro-slavery ideology. Meanwhile, Abraham Lincoln and others harkened back to the Declaration of Independence and other founding documents to bolster the claim that slavery ought to be abolished.
