With the North having more people to go to war with, it was clear their army would be able to defeat the South. The rising numbers of death in the South tremendously weakened their army, which allowed for a Northern succession. William C. Davis asserts, “Industrially the South couldn’t keep up in output and in manpower. By the end of the war, the South had, more or less, plenty of weaponry still, but it just didn’t have enough men to use the guns”. Having such a small army, the South was not able to sustain a decent amount of soldiers for the war.

After we had fought the brutal, decimating Civil War, white supremacy in the caused our nation to take two steps further than we were even before the War. Obviously, hearing this, sounds like extreme conflict. Ironically enough though, this major step back in history was called, “The Compromise of 1877.” Unfortunately, this “compromise” did way more harm than good for African Americans. The Compromise of 1877 was a corrupt agreement between three powerful southern states and Rutherford B. Hayes that led to him being elected President and the stripping away from African American rights. After the Civil War, “Lives of black slaves had improved greatly and there was hope for emancipation of slaves in those states.
However , most of Europe was resource poor. Consequently, European industries were dependent on raw materials from Asia, the Americas, and Africa. For example, one of the earliest industries in Europe was the cotton textile industry, which helped stimulate the industrial revolution. The industry was completely dependent on imported cotton. As industrialization encouraged their governments to colonize African countries as a method of guaranteeing sources of raw materials.
The railways moved large numbers of troops and hauled heavy ammunition, ration and medicine for the army on the battlefield much faster than ever before. The North had well-developed integrated and flexible railway network in serving the Union army's logistic needs over long distances. The Southern railroads in contrast, were not so convenient for military operation. They mostly connected the hinterlands with the ports, without inter linkage and had three different track gauges limiting the ready ability to carry freight to long
The Market Revolution led to the rise of the Cotton Kingdom; While the North became an industrial and manufacturing powerhouse, the South became a cotton kingdom, founded on slavery. White settlers from Virginia and the Carolinas, began to force original Native Americans further west and they moved in and established plantations in the now freed regions. The South was filled with the production of cotton, and it was controlled by plantation agriculture. As the cotton-based economy rose so did slavery, as slaves were needed to work on the plantations.
The French and Indian War (Seven Years War), fought between the British and the French over the Ohio River Valley was a huge contributing factor to said debt. Although the British proved to be triumphant in the war, they lost a lot of money and a lot of soldiers. During the course of the years, Britain wanted economic relief and turned to the colonies. After the War, amplified British taxation on the colonies ruined the relationship that they had with the colonies. The British said the taxation
There, labour was needed and labour was available but in different places. The need for labour sprang from the inherent demographic difference between the Americas and South Asia, from the impact of European expansion and from the specific labor tasks that the colonists required. The Atlantic slave trade paid much attention to the role of the slave trade in British North America and West Indian colonies. According to Kenneth Morgan (2007: 18) “the transatlantic slave trade was an important business enterprise within the British Empire for nearly a century and a half, from the restoration of the Stuart monarchy in 1660 until the trade was abolished in 1807”. In this period the slave trade and its capital turnover made a substantial contribution to the economic development of the British Empire.
One of the major reasons that Virginia had a greater amount of slave was due to Chesapeake plantation which demanded a large amount of slaves to cultivate plantation. Meanwhile, up north in Massachusetts in the New England region slavery was not as high demand as in the south. By the 17 century their social structure was based on cultivators and plantation, and population was at its highest peak in 1760 due the slavery trade. The North and south Caroline brought their profit mostly by the slave trade since the southern region demanded high range of
