Slaves began to outweigh the number of indentured servants due to the Slave Codes which made the slaves and their descendants property rather than people and lack of opportunities for indentured servants. The economy of the New England and Chesapeake colonies were different due to the climate of each colonies which either led to a reliance on industry or agriculture. The religion of each colony was also impacted the economy, of whether of not they used slavery, and was a major difference in
It was based off of an agrarian economy (Document B). Slaves picked cotton off the plantation and the farmers sold the cotton to make money (Document A). The Southern weren't able to keep their money without slaves working for free. Slavery was vital in the South for the economy. In the North slavery wasn't practiced.
The southern colony and New England Colony had many differences. The New England colony was based more in manufacturing while the southern colony was about agriculture as far as their economy. One big difference is that New England colony didn’t believe in slavery like the southern colonies believed. Slaves and indentured servants were the backbone of the Southern economy. They did much of the labor work for the southern colonies cash crops.
The slave based trade of cotton also led to improvements for the entire country. The textile factories and industrialization of the north was heavily influenced by southern cotton. The argument made in the statement is incorrect because not only did the economy improved, the social and community structures of the South grew to intricate living styles and beliefs. White
Between 1800 and 1860 two major things changed within the country. The cash crops changed from tobacco and rice to the new money maker cotton. Along with the crops changing the slave trade grew to replace the economic short fall in the Chesapeake area. These changed occurred due to the supply and demand of commonly bought goods. Another contributing factor for the crops changing was the invention of the cotton gin in 1793 and the use of cotton in textile facilities.
There were many differences between the North and the South. For instance, the South were very agricultural as opposed to the North which were industrial. The South used cheap labor in the form of slaves, whereas the North had workers do their jobs in factories at a faster pace. Because of sectionalism, competition between the north and the south began to increase. They were arguing over the new territories
Both lands had royal governors who controlled and ruled. The North and South also had legislatures that had the power to create, amend, and ratify the laws. The North and South both supported the use of indentured servants, people who worked their debt off with labor work for landowners for about seven years. And both regions very heavily influenced by mercantilism. This was an Economic philosophy or practice in which England established the colonies to provide raw materials to the Mother Country; the colonies received manufactured goods in return.
The Puritans established the Northern colonies and the southern colonies were ruled by The house of burgesses. In the southern colonies the main people that inhabited the area were Catholics and protestants. The southern colonies ended up becoming excessively dependent on a plantation company that required slavery. Slavery was not a great solution to the labor problem but because a large portion or people owned a lot slaves and since that ownership was viewed as their wealth they were loathed to give up those slaves without financial compensation. Slavery was allowed in New England but very few people owned slaves.
Before the Civil War, the south was mainly agriculturally based and relied on slaves and plantations to make income. Hence, their reluctance to industrialize. However, after the Civil War ended and the south was reconstructed, they began to industrialize much more than they had, however the northern economy and industrialization was still much more expanded than that of the
there was a big demand for guns and ammunition to, lots of people needed guns for hunting and protection. The geography was also a very different subject. In the north there were below freezing winters and hot humid summers. The north had flat plains and rocky soil. And the south
The export of southern cotton was greatly responsible for the economic development of the North. In addition, the northern states profitable more from the south. Half of the southern cotton was exported to England. Cotton was used to made a lot of things in Europe, especially Great Britain. Families remained important in African American culture.
The southern states were economically dependent on agriculture. Most of the southern people income came from crops such as rice, indigo, sugar, and tobacco. Tobacco was the cash crop until cotton was produced. After the production of cotton grew drastically, slaves were used as a resource for picking cotton. Southern states then went on to open trading passageways with other countries to trade cotton and slaves.
Since the beginning of American history, conflicts have arose between the North and the South between the varied people that inhabited the land. Clashing viewpoints were common between people and the military, large and small states, and between free and slave states during the civil war. The Civil War was fought from 1861 to 1865, it was fought within the United States and was the North versus the South. The cause was rooted on the discussion of slavery, but also on sectionalism between the North and South. Sectionalism can be defined as when a group restricts their interests to a narrow sphere without concern for the general well-being of other groups.
