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
Edward Burke’s response to the French Revolution was a collection of thoughts that were written without any formal formatting. It is an influential writing that is in many ways still applicable to today’s society. There are many things that influenced Burke’s response to the French Revolution including his time as a Whig politician in which he was very involved in England’s political system. His views on American independence, religious tolerance for the people of Ireland, and theories on the social order, economic theory, and political principles are all factors that led to Burke’s response to Charles-Jean-François Depont with his second letter. Burke had three major trains of thought that made up his response to the Revolution.
He was able to purchase more than 800,000 square miles from France for only $15 million dollars. He was able to acquire this land from Napoleon Bonaparte, the French ruler at the time, due to the ongoing chaos happening to France such as the slave revolt in Haiti and the threat of war with Britain. (History.com Staff) After this purchase, he pushed for the Lewis and Clark expedition to commence. This voyage was to assess the new property they had just acquired and to explore the prospects for military, commercial, and oceanic aspects of the land. Although it was discovered that the imaginary water route that many had envisioned turned out to be just that, imaginary, invaluable information was discovered during this trip in terms of scientific research.
Prior to the French Revolution, France relied on the Gregorian Calendar as a system to organize days for social, religious, commercial, and administrative purpose. While most of Europe had adopted the Gregorian Calendar as it’s primary tool to keep track of the days of the year and the several events that occurred during it, the French decided to make a change, and to completely abandon the Gregorian in favor of a new French Republican Calendar. During the time period of 1789-1806, there were mixed reactions from the adoption of this Calendar, some good and others bad.
For example, Economic New England was based on more agriculture and less industry. People in the New England region mainly done small scale farming due to long winters and poor soil conditions. The New England colonies built the economy through fishing, whaling, shipbuilding, trading, and lumber. The New England region was also mainly industrial and focused more
another self-strategy was the alliance exchange making farmers focus on a central purchasing house. all these actions failed because farmers were too poor or in debt due to prior sales. the system was poorly capitalized, prices were too high for farmers, they ended up being victims to business causing the uprising of boycotts. the subtreasary plan succeed this plan helped farmers by giving them loans in order to grow and sell crops. The back and forth communication and strategies not only lead the famers to a political path but it also began the start of the populist party.
The way in which the colonies made enough money to support England was based off as the geography of the land and how conducive the use of agriculture and cash-crops would be. The different climates of the New England and Chesapeake created different economies for each. In New England, the economy was based on shipbuilding and fishing because of long winters and the rocky soil that was not fertile. New England colonies, founded by primarily large families, only had small family farms as a result of the climate and turned to trade and industry rather than agriculture. The lack of need for farming for the economy led to the abolishment of slavery, as it was seen as unnecessary based off the economy.
During the mid 1800s, as America was expanding westward, the economy of the different regions in America boosted. The north based their economy off of the recently developed industries, whereas the south continued their work with agriculture and the production of cotton. The development of these two very different forms of business led to sectionalism, or the devotion to the advancement of one’s region as opposed to the country as whole. As more people immigrated to the US in the 1840s specifically from Ireland and Germany, America’s newfound industries were provided with unqualified and inexperienced employees who would work for very little pay. These immigrants were forced to move to the north because they didn’t have the money to buy land
May 5, 1789, the beginning of the infamous French Revolution.

Following many European reform trends, France in 1789 began their own major reform that lasted nearly a decade.
These differences, while at the time, may have seemed small, gave our country two unique economies. And these economies almost split our country in two. The varying economies between the North and South caused tension in the United States, which caused the Civil War and then for North to win. The South’s economy was based on agriculture. This meant the South focused on farms and plantations and had very few factories.
Canadian immigrants were mostly the peasants of France, so when they came over their station in life actually improved. It started when the French crown decided they needed more colonist to inhabit New France. Although, there were few French colonist then English colonist, due to the cultural values and institutional obstacles. Even though, the poor French lived in worse and harsher conditions, then the poor English families they still stayed in France. When the emigrants come over seas, they gain an opportunity to
The cotton gin was one such invention. In the 1780’s, there was some cotton production. But harvesting the actual cotton from the seeds was so time-consuming, it wasn’t very profitable. By the time the cotton gin was invented in 1793, slavery was decreasing. With one simple invention, everything changed.
Changes in the Young Nation During the year of 1790 somethings occurred to the nations and to the people living in them affecting them in many ways. As years passed people started noticing some changes in their lives, economic, political, agricultural, and others. They knew agriculture was the center of their economy, and they knew they had to take care of it.

Discussion The Colonies in the New World was a place with a lot of land, but not enough people to cultivate it properly. To rectify this lack of labor, the practice of indentured servitude became a primary means to gain labor for the settler’s land on the newly settled continent. While initially, this form of employment proved beneficial to the settlers and to some extent to the servants themselves, the labor pool of willing servants began to shrink and the cost associated with them began to increase. Slaves became common and a more cost efficient option for labor
