He said that Georgia’s declaration “is inaccurate about the protection of northern business interests AND about businessmen actively seeking coalition with antislavery groups” and pointed me to Business & Slavery by Philip Foner to show that “mercantile and financial business elements in the North opposed the Republican party because they feared its triumph would provoke disunion.”

That book is out of print and all the hard copies I found were $100+.

If anyone is interested, that book can be rented for free for 14-days from if you create a username.
