John C. Calhoun
By: Sierra Yoshida
He created the "Slavery: a positive good speech". This was a speech that he wrote that portrayed that slavery was a positive thing, a benefit for everyone. He stated in the speech "the relation now existing in the slave holding states between the two, is, instead of an evil, a good---a positive good". To also prove his point about slavery, he created a two point defense. One point was a political defense while the second was an argument that showed the good sides of slavery.
