Yes, the civil war was inevitable. With tensions rising in the north and the south, violence from the John Brown raid and the Kansas Nebraska Act, and slavery an ever pressing matter in politics, a war had to occur to solve these issues.
The most influential cause of the Civil War is the Missouri Compromise of 1820. This is because of sectionalism. Sectionalism split the country into two groups. The pro-slavery Southerners and abolitionist Northerners. This essentially created a geographical line that would decide this issue. This line would split party support, morals on the institution of slavery, and economy. The North would support the pro federal government parties and be based around an industrial economy. The South on the other hand would support state's rights parties and be based around an agrarian economy. This sectionalism would divide these groups and would lead to each attempting to gain as much control as possible. Slavery would split the two more than anything and would be the ultimate reason the two groups would go to war.
The Civil War was truly inevitable because tensions were rising and with the rise of slavery this angered the North. The south seceded and we went to war. So yes the war was truly inevitable.
The Civil War was primarily inevitable due to the long burning issue of slavery. Over many long years, slavery drew a divide between the North and South, creating more and more sectionalism. Many compromises were used to prolong the peace between the two regions. These compromises were of no use, especially due to the expansion west and how the expansion of slavery was challenged. The Missouri Compromise of 1820 was the major compromise that caused a snowball effect, creating enough sectionalism to make the war inevitable. The 36 30' Line created the literal divide between the North and South, differing views dividing the country in two. The Kansas-Nebraska Act tore everything apart in that it virtually cancelled the Missouri Compromise and showed that people could choose what they wanted with popular sovereignty. This did not please everyone, though, and was a significant contributor to the start of secession with South Carolina. Tensions and opinions were to differing for war to have been avoidable.
Slavery was the main cause that stimulated more issues leading to the Civil War. As the North became more industrialized and did not depend upon slavery they formed different opinions on the practice. The South never became as industrialized and stayed agriculturally based and very dependent on slavery to maintain their ecenomy. As the economies changed between the North and South feelings about the necessity of slavery changed as well. The North paid people to work in factories so why couldn't the south free their slaves and just pay them? As the economies changed political prefferances, needs, and lifestyles changed too. During this time of change land opened up in the west and people argued over what land should be considered what and people needed political support to get things that would benifit themselves and their lifestyles. It all came down to slavery as the big issue and the country became divided. As matters got worse and tensions grew people lost patience and then the war started dispite the compromises that were made to help. But people are not satisfied with compromises for long and eventually they want all of what they asked for instead of half of it. And then war broke out because people were tired of not getting entirely their own way over the issue of slavery.
The Civil War was inevitable. Even if the Lincoln decided to accept the secession of the Confederacy without a war, Northerners would rally behind a war against this new nation just as the war hawks did prior to the War of 1812. The war was fought for a number of reasons many of which were centered around morals. In the North, the common view was that the enslavement of a fellow human was immoral. These types of views, do not change with a geographic boundary. The primary cause of this war was not slavery or the arguments of states rights, but a difference in ideals. The North ideals developed with time to be more contemporary with the ideals of Europe, which had already outlawed slavery and undergone plenty of revolutions both intellectual and political. On the other hand, the South held on to tradition with the plantation system, racist outlooks and religious zeal. Once again, differences like these do not disappear with a line; the two sides were going to clash. It was not a question of if, but when.
The Civil War was inevitable due to the issue of slavery. The single, most influential cause of the Civil War was the Missouri Compromise. The Missouri Compromise admitted Missouri as a slave state and then Maine as a free state. It also established that north of the 36 30' line would be considered free in any additional states. Maine was only admitted as a free state to keep balance of free and slave states in the government. The Missouri Compromise was the most influential cause of the Civil War because it began the classification of slave and free states and set a line that basically split the United States upon their beliefs. This compromise truly began the sectionalism that led to the Civil War. The North soon became significantly different than the south due to the issue of slavery. The North was industrial and contained many abolitionists, whereas the South continued their economy off the slave system and lacked much of the technological advancement the North experienced at the time. The opposing beliefs of the North and South was acknowledged by the government by issuing the Missouri Compromise because it was an attempt to settle rising conflict over the slavery issue by creating officially whether a state would allow slavery or not. Although the compromise would temporarily calm tension between the North and South, the two would soon not be satisfied with the geographical line splitting slavery; both regions wanted the new states to go in favor of their beliefs. Overall, the Missouri Compromise introduced the idea of deciding whether a new states would be slave or free which was the major conflict between the North and South the years leading up to the Civil War.
War was inevitable. The growing sectionalism and contreversy over slavery resulted to an inevitable war. Although, the Misssouri compromise tried to solve and help the issue of slavery, it just added to the contreversy of slavery. The geographical line of the Missouri compromise of 1820 caused sectionalism and proslavery and abolitionists to split. The sectionalism tensions proved to lead to more contreversy and disagreement over the topic of slavery. Slavery caused the inevitable war because the rising of sectional tensions over slavery and the proslavery and abolitionists views against the cruelty of slavery.
With rising tensions between the north and south over slavery due to territorial disagreements, and violent protests on slavery by those that oppose it such as John Brown. When the Missouri Compromise came around it caused sectionalism between the North and the South and they were separated on the idea of slavery by the 36 30' line. The tensions only grew between the two sides and that led to the inevitable Civil War.
