The American civil war was a four year period of bloodshed on American soil due to the wars between the North and South. Arguably the main five causes of this catastrophe were: the economic and social differences between the North and the South, the fight between slave and non-slave state proponents as the South still wanted slavery to continue but the North wanted to abolish it , the growth of the Abolition Movement, the states versus federal rights and the election of Abraham Lincoln. However there were many more causes that led up to the American civil war like: The Underground Railroad and “the bleeding kansas”, a territory close to the state of Missouri where a lot of battles were fought. The South believed in an antiquated social
In the early 1800s, when plantation owners left almost all other crops in favour of the newly profitable cotton. To increase cotton production planters purchased more slaves from Africa and the West Indies before the slave trade was banned in 1808. Thousands of blacks were brought into the United States during these years to tend to cotton fields, the size of plantations increased from relatively small plots to huge farms with as many as several hundred slaves each. Because the entire Southern economy became dependent on cotton, it also became dependent on slavery. Although Northern factories certainly benefited indirectly from slavery, Northern social customs were not tied to slavery as Southern customs were.
The North had railroad links that would transport their supplies, guns, ammunition, and uniforms from their factories to the frontlines. At the time the North had a population of 22 million people against the 9 million in the South (of whom almost half were slaves.) The North was more industrial and produced 94 percent of the USA’s pig iron and 97 percent of its firearms. The Southern Confederacy hope that France and Britain would come to their aid due to their need of cotton, but these countries had enough cotton supply from their colonial territories and a more significant demand for Northern wheat and corn. The Union had a larger navy, blocking all efforts from the Confederacy to trade with Europe.
The Compromise of 1850 was a compromise proposed by Henry Clay regarding the future of slavery, especially in the territories acquired during the Mexican American War. This vital compromise delayed the Civil War for several years, and temporally extinguished the slavery issue. Despite the balance brought through the compromise neither North nor South was content with the compromise. Several speakers made speeches stating their opinions on the compromise, and their plan for the future of the country. Henry Clay’s speech on February 6, 1850, describes the great accomplishments of the United States and the necessity to resolve the territorial issue that threats to cause Civil War.
Jefferson Davis became president of the Confederate States of America, after Southern states seceded as a result the failure of the Constitution to protect their values and institutions. He acknowledged changes made to the Constitution, in order to preserve the United States, and the rights of its citizens, but feels it has failed. Despite the amendments added to the Constitution he is perplexed that nothing has been done to prevent the North from taking control of the Government. The North was able to gain greater influence in government than the South as a result of a larger population. Abraham Lincoln, who was president of the Union, in Document I declared that the states that seceded had no right to do so.
The South mainly used them for work on plantations, and the North used them for various things, like housekeeping and working in factories. Many people in the North became against slavery, and by the late 1700’s many states in the North had outlawed it. Slavery went on in the South for almost another century until it was finally banned. This did not make free Blacks free to live like everybody else, though. Free Blacks
The emancipation proclamation was one of the most earth-shattering events for slaves in America. President Abraham Lincoln began a long road to success to abolish slavery in the United States. The Emancipation Proclamation signed on January 1, 1862, did not free all slaves but only applied to the slaves that were in the South and placed not occupied by the federal military forces. The Border States such as Maryland, Kentucky, Delaware, and Missouri have not included Emancipation Proclamation. The order of the president was based on the constitutional authority of the president since the Congress did not pass the law (Carnahan, 2007).
After years of fighting two of the earliest wars of America’s history is about freedom, the ancestors finally eradicated official ball-and-chain slavery from our cities upon the hills. But even if literal slavery passed, Jim Crow laws, arguably one of the most unjustifiable crimes to the American Dream, brought segregation, causing the freedom to be not so free after all. Blacks weren’t the only ones that faced discrimination either: women, natives, and other minorities had to work their way through life, dealing with unequal treatment every day. But then World War II rolled around: an atrocity in Europe, but a revolutionary event for American society. We went from the strict misogyny and tyranny to near-equality in a matter of 20 years due to the effort of activists.
For that matter, they were more skilled and educated than the other immigrants, and they carried along their money and other resources to enable them secure a comfortable living in the US. The first immigrants arrived earlier in the 1800s where they settled in farmlands and rapidly growing cities of the Midwest. The first Germans arrived in the Pennsylvania colony in 1683, but German immigration began in force after 1830s. The primary cause of German migration was the economic distress they faced while in their home country Germany. This economic distress emanated from the rising populations as well as social and economic troubles that were facing the initial stages of agricultural commercialization, urban area development and industrial revolution.
The experts of the Pakistan’s textile industry feels that the country has pretty large textile industry in size and the machines (60-70%) need immediate replacement for the super, fine, quality and economic production of products for competing in a highly competitive market. But unfortunately, there were no facilities in textile machinery for manufacturing of balancing modernization and replacement in the mills which became the matter to think about the joint ventures so that it becomes possible with the China and Italy for the production of complete spinning and with Korea, Taiwan and Italy the production of shuttle less looms
