Evaluate slide

“There were many events that caused a divide between the North and the South prior to the United States Civil War. For instance, there was slavery and the missouri compromise. However, in my opinion, the event that caused the greatest divide between the two sides was the missouri compromise. I believe this to be true for three reasons. The first being slaves because the north said it was wrong and it should be stop because slaves are people and not an item. Another thing was slaves were treated as a machine/property which was fine for south but wrong for north they had blacks free but they were not accepted in farm to own slaves they were still black. The last one was debates about if slavery should be stoped or should be still be used so the north and south started to gain tension and then they snapped like a rubber band.
