Slavery was legal in the Southern part of the US. Southerners get most of the profits from the plantaions especially cotton. Because they couldn't plant the tobacco in one land or else they couldn't use the land again. Therefore, cotton was the right plant for them to plant. To separate a lot of seeds from the cotton, it was a hard job. So, they must exploit slaves to do this work everyday. In the south because they were using slaves and get lots of profits from this, they buy lots of things that are made from North. Slaves have increased the productivity of southerners. Therefore, it also increased the profits of the northerners. So, actually it was good for both of them.

Life on platation was great for American land owners. But for slaves, it was terrible. They had to work all day except Sunday, and sometimes they were beaten, whipped, and even killed. I think this situation doesn't continue now because nowadays, agriculture can be automatically done. Fugitive Slave Act allowed slave owners to catch slaves who ran away from their master. They could even catch free black men and make them slaves.
