In document 3 it says “ The South thus quickly established a rural way of life supported by an agricultural economy based on slave labor.” So if the South lost slavery their economy would fall and the south would be very very poor. So therefore the Southern states left the union because they didn’t want to be poor.

Slavery was a major part in the Old South, and the loss of the war for the south would result in the loss of the most distinctive factor of the Old South. Many of the farms and plantations either had, or even relied on slaves, and once again Rhett saw this coming and advised Scarlett to get every last glimpse of the Old South. Rhett was very observant when it came to the events of the war, and he wanted to warn the others of the eventual down fall of the Old South. He did just that on the way to Tara, and what he said is very true.
Consequently, the North and the South developed different societies and economies. During the 1830s, the abolitionist movement in the North viewed slavery as an immoral act and urged the end of slavery, which took away the liberty of slaves. In response to the abolitionism, many Southerners became more determined to defend slavery. This led to the splitting of free and slaves states. The North would have free states and the South would have slave states.

Leon F. Litwack says that it was the public adoption of ‘principles used to justify the American Revolution’ which ultimately doomed slavery in the North.

During this time, slavery debates and fights were held throughout the nation that ended with the Civil War. During the Civil War, the South represented themselves with the Confederate flag, which symbolizes the belief in keeping slavery. So, it should not come to a surprise when Bree Newsome, an African American activist, scaled the flagpole in South Carolina and removed the symbol of hate. The confederate flag has been removed from national areas as it represents a bleaker time in history. The concept of the confederate flag and the conclusions made on its meaning, which was anti abolition, shaped the movement that called for its removal throughout the nation.
Even though the North, and South were part of the same country, both had specific needs, and held many differences between each other.
