dc.description.abstract During the first forty-five years of Indiana's existence as a state there was widespread support for the institution of slavery by the people of the United States. During the many controversies which involved slavery in this period much sentiment was expressed in Indiana as well as the nation, in support of the institution.It is the purpose of this study to analyze and discuss the pro-slavery sentiment which existed in Indiana from statehood to the Civil War. Much emphasis will be placed on its origin, characteristics, development and decline.Numerous and varied sources have been utilized in this study. Much of the information comes from official state documents, from Indiana newspapers of the period, and from the Congressional Globe. Considerable use is made of articles in national and state historical journals. The census figures for the state of Indiana have also been utilized.Since pro-slavery sentiment is so closely related to the composition and characteristics of the population, it is necessary to begin this study with a short discussion of how, from where and by whom Indiana was settled throughout this period. en_US
