Why did we free the slaves?

Elaborate, what was the reason and incentive behind freeing slaves, and the north's tolerance towards refugee runaways, and people who would be considered slaves. Was there any particular reason, doesn't seem like the world really wanted to get it's shit together until hitler did his thing. So I imagine there was some incentive for the US to abolish slavery, and the north's tolerance towards slaves. I understand there was less of a need for slavery up north due to factories but that can't be the entire reason.
