Conservatives usually supported the South while Liberals usually supported the North.

Provincial newspapers, however, less consistently followed ideological patterns than their Parisian and big-city colleagues. Slavery was not a determinant of French attitudes, since all French were opposed to slavery- rather, both Conservatives and Liberals used the issue of slavery as a device to garner support.
