First steps in American History

What was the problem about slavery?

 Abraham Lincoln wanted to abolish slavery in the South.
In 1847 he managed to jump into the House of Representatives in Washington.
While the south continued with slaver, Abraham Lincoln was elected as US president on November 6th 1860. As a result, the north fought for the freedom of all people living in the US. This dispute, which has been smoldering for years, has now become a cause for the civil war. The main reason for the civil war was the wish of the southern states to have the right to decide their own political conflicts and to become independent.
