Why was there tension in slavery in the 1840's

    Many people felt that slavery was immoral -- the idea of owning other human beings was repugnant. In addition, slavery was illegal in many states.

    On the other hand, many slave owners in the South were convinced that their economic and social way of life would be devastated if slavery were abolished.
