Civil War: Slavery
Transcript of Civil War: Slavery
Eli Whitney was the inventor of the cotton gin, which greatly increased the number of slaves in America.
Why? The cotton gin
The cotton gin, invented in 1793, made cotton into a profitable crop, because of the way it could clean cotton quickly. This led to more slaves being bought. In 20 years from 1790, there was a 70 percent increase of slaves.
Interchangeable parts are parts that are so alike, they could work in the same machine. Eli Whitney put the idea into play with his cotton gin.
Henry Clay was one if the creators if the American System in 1816. He was against slavery but he owned slaves himself. His American System led to the increased separation between the south and the north, leading up to the revolution
The American System
The American System was partially made by Henry Clay and John Calhoun, as a Tariff in 1816. It was a plan to build u American economic system, as the sectionalists did not want this plan to benefit the other side of the nation, and the nationalists where up for it.
