Less than 25 years after US independence won

all of the north states had abolished slavery. Think about that. We keep hearing that America is a racist nation. But its not so. America inherited slavery and almost from the outset attempted to abolish the practice. By 1804, 21 years after the United States won the Revolutionary War for independence in 1783, all of the northern states were free. The ONLY reason the south would not abolish slavery is that their agrarian economy had become too dependent on the free labor provided by slavery. It was economically more acceptable than morally unacceptable. It would take a war for the south to change their way of life
