What Abolished Slavery in the North?

Answer

Slavery was gradually abolished in the northern states because the economy in the north relied less on unskilled labor for agriculture than the economy of the south. The Northwest Ordinance effectively ended slavery in all United States Territories northwest of the Ohio River, and the Emancipation Proclamation ended slavery in all territories held by the Union during the Civil War. The thirteenth amendment ended slavery in the United States.
