In the past United States, the South and the North are different from each other. The South was mainly based on agriculture, while the North is more industrialized after the Industrial Revolution. The South was keeping the old thoughts and old ways. A country would not be peaceful if there were two or more separated groups, for example, the United States before Civil War. The South is agricultural, the South wants to keep slavery because the masters were relied on the slaves to work for them. On the other hand, the North became industrialized because of the Industrial Revolution, and the Northerners thought that the slavery would impede the growth of capitalism and the unification of the whole country. The South wanted to keep slavery, while the North wanted to abolish slavery.

Slavery helped the masters save money on labors. All the generations were belongs to the masters, and they had the rights to sell the slaves to earn money. The South also wanted to spread the slavery to the West. The North needed cheap labors to help industrialize the North, but they would not like to have slaves to help them. Slavery could help improve the productivity of the plantations, most likely a master had many slaves, and the masters did not need to pay the salves to work for them. When there were more people to work in the same place, the productivity would increase. On the other hand, the North’s economy grew fast after the Industrial Revolution, therefore, it wanted the other parts of the United States to be industrialized in order to improve the economy of the country and the growth of capitalism. The North thought that slavery would block the way of industrialization and the growth of the
The two opposing sides were the North and the South. The North, known also as the Union, was against slavery of African Americans and wanted it abolished. The South, also known as the Confederacy, believed in slavery. The South depended on slave labor for agriculture and their economy. The North thought it was morally wrong to enslave a man or woman.
The north had big cities and moved from agriculture and they moved to industrialization. The south also maintains economic agriculture. The south got jealous about how the north is developing that fast and started a conflict. The north needed the materials from the south so the north also knew it might start something and got ready for it.
The new wealth in the north scared the plantation owners in the south, because this would give the north more power. Increased power in the north would give them a larger say in the capitol which makes it easier for them to pass laws that
“A house divided against itself cannot stand -- I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free” (Riggs 1). In the 1850’s the North’s economy and the South’s economy were very different from each other. The North relied on industries and had no need for slavery. While the South mostly relied on agriculture and slavery. After many disagreements over slavery it led to the Civil War.
Because, the North diverse economy based on industry and agriculture. But the South economy based on agriculture. Also the North had many factory, but the South had many farm, so they need slaves. Secondly, they were proud of theirselves, so it makes their relationship worse. Finally many slaves from the South trying to run over to
The differences between the North and the South during the Market Revolution were extremely divergent, and the continual growth of cotton as a staple crop caused societal changes that created a larger divide between the two (Schultz, 2014). Whereas, the North depended on commercialized farming and industrialization, the South remain predominately agricultural with few cities, and depended on the export of cotton. The money gained by the growth of cotton led to a societal hierarchy that placed Plantation owners at the top, then small farmers, white farm laborers without property, and finally slaves (Schultz, 2009). This hierarchical order deeply impacted the society of the south with deep divisions, but one true commonality that was a belief in slavery.
Conclusion During the first half of the 19th century, the North and South both experienced important economic, demographic, political, and cultural changes. With development of cotton agriculture, Southerners became increasingly tied to the system of labor that provided their economic security slavery. Meanwhile, during the same years, the North moved toward free labor and an increasingly diverse economy (industrialization, urbanization, western settlement).
The Union was victorious in the American Civil War, this had altered the course of history for Americans in the residing in the North and South. The Reconstruction era had lasting effects throughout the two regions as it attempted to discuss the inequities of slavery in the South but also reunited the seceded states. Within the historical timeline, between 1865 through 1898, the differences in political, social, and economic legacies of the North and South is apparent. However, similarities are observed in the migration of oppressed groups during the development of the West. This was possible because of railroad expansion in the North and after the war, the railroad was rapidly expanding in the South and westbound.
Prior to the Civil War, the North and the South had many differences in their economies and how their day to day lives operated. The North was heavily industrialized and utilized cheap labor from European immigrants in the factories. The South on the other hand, was reliant on agriculture. They had large plantations that used slave labor to process cash crops like cotton and indigo. The South’s use of slaves in their plantations sparked heavy debate on whether the practice was moral and brought up the issue of state’s rights.
The slavery issue seemed to divide the North and South to the point of Civil War. The South felt economically dependent on slavery. It enjoyed having a free labor system. It also relied on slave labor to maintain the growth of the farms and plantations. The north didn’t support slavery because they believed it was unfair the south didn’t have to pay for labor.
When the New World was discover it depend on slavery to help finance the colonies and the industrial revolution. When the Slavery trade first started it open many jobs for the people in the colonies. They needed people to make the boats, the shackles, also the people that would go and get the slaves. In the south slavery played a big part in the economy, whether it was from working in the cotton plantations to slave trade. The plantation owners would pay the slaves a very low amount of money for the amount of work they did or not pay them at all, they would work for free and that way they would save a large amount of money.
Slavery was a easy way to get people to do your work for you. It was cheap and easy labor that almost anyone can buy. The constitution was made to protect the rights of the people but it gave more power to the government. Also when the colonies said “The People” they were referring to white males. The African American males still weren 't even looked at as people they were looked at as property.
Slavery has existed since the early 1600s in America. It was around for over 200 years in the colonies, before it was abolished completely. During this time period, approximately 10 million African Americans were enslaved. By definition, a slave is when one human, in this case an African American, is owned by another human, a colonist, who are deemed to be more power than the slave. They were forced to do work for no pay, receiving only a minimal amount of food and shelter given to them by their masters.
The Industrial Revolution caused tension between the North and the South. The north mostly concentrated on manufacturing products and south grew the raw materials used to make those products. Since the north concentrated on manufacturing, there wasn’t a high demand for slaves. Meanwhile, the south grew for example cotton, and many other raw materials so there was a high demand for slavery since white people did not want to do low-paying, unskilled and hard labor. On January 1808, the north and a few southern congressmen, voted to abolish the slave trade.
