. "From 1770-1860, slavery and the American revolution this war created new opportunities for slaves to become free.

The revolution held back abolition of slavery. This war only fueled the fire and made slavery a staple in the new America. While trying to improve the quality of life on all sides it in effect caused more civil unrest and allowed slavery to continue in the new world, while everywhere else in the Atlantic world it was ending. Slavery continued to gain a foothold in the America's it was the revolution that ensured that slavery would last and help build a new nation. If the revolution never happen then it is reasonable to believe that it would have went away just as it did for the rest of Europe.

As the plantation grew in size, the requirement of labor also grew in the same proportion. The planters were accustomed to using slaves as cheap labor and did not want to give up this even with the revolution in place. The revolution was transitional in nature, in the sense that while in France it led to the abolition of slavery, but in America, it did not.
