    “””The 15 slave states at the time of the Civil War were Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia (including West Virginia which hadn’t separated from Virginia at that time). (The District of Columbia also had slavery prior to the Civil War.) Though not states, slavery was practiced in the Nebraska Territory and in the Indian Territory (Oklahoma) as early as the 1850s. The last northern state to abolish slavery was New Jersey in 1804, although the laws of that state retained slaves over a certain age as “apprentices for life” until the 13th Amendment, in 1865.

    Eleven of these states declared their secession in 1860 and 1861 to form the Confederate States of America; Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland and Missouri did not leave the Union. West Virginia joined the Union as a slave state in 1863 after seceding from Virginia.””

    Thus the non Slave States would be // Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Oregon and California see this link

    RE:

    during the 1860s which US states allowed slavery?which did not?

  • From 1654 until 1865, slavery for life was legal within the boundaries of the present United States. Most slaves were black and were held by whites, although some Native Americans and free blacks also held slaves. The majority of slave holding was in the southern United States where most slaves were engaged in an efficient machine-like gang system of agriculture. According to the 1860 U.S. census, nearly four million slaves were held in a total population of just over 12 million in the 15 states in which slavery was legal.

    Of all 1,515,605 families in the 15 slave states, 393,967 held slaves (roughly one in four), amounting to 8% of all American families. Most slave holding households, however, had only a few slaves. The majority of slaves was held by planters, defined by historians as those who held 20 or more slaves. The planters achieved wealth and social and political power. Ninety-five percent of black people lived in the South, comprising one-third of the population there, as opposed to 2% of the population of the North.

    Twelve million black Africans were shipped to the Americas from the 16th to the 19th centuries. Of these, an estimated 645,000 (5.4% of the total) were brought to what is now the United States. The overwhelming MAJORITY were shipped to Brazil. The slave population in the United States had grown to four million by the 1860 Census.

    In 1654, John Casor, a black man, became the first legally-recognized slave in the area to become the United States. A court in Northampton County ruled against Casor, declaring him property for life, “owned” by the black colonist Anthony Johnson.

  • I assume you want to know the states that allowed slavery, some states were neutral towards slavery so i’ll list you the slave states.

    Texas, Louisana, Arkansas, Missouri, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware, the District of Columbia was until the civil war began.

    Nebraska and Oklahoma allowed slavery at one time.

    it’s important to note however West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky, and Misssouri did not secede from the Union and were not members of the Confederate States of America.

  • Free States And Slave States

  • You may find this hard to believe, ALL of the US states had slavery during the Civil War, including the Northern States. Even Washington D.C. had its share of slaves.

  • Was Maryland A Slave State

  • Mainly the Southern States allowed slavery. The North tried to stop slavery in America

  • The South liked slavery and the North didn’t like slavery.
