Transcript of Regionalism in 1800s America

The North was the manufacturing center of America at the time, and they favored higher tariffs and wanted a national bank because wanted available money. The South on hand preferred low protective tariffs because they needed to import goods necessary for cotton farming. The West wanted to expand America's territory. The conflict mostly existed between the North and South, who had opposing views. This caused division and conflict between the different sections of the country. Also there was a disagreement over slavery. A slave state wanted to join the union, this would upset the delicate balance of slave and free states. This was another cause of regionalism. Eventually the slave and free state issue was solved through the Missouri Compromise.
Western America
The Western part of America was filled with brave pioneers seeking new lands. They wanted to expand American territory to the west so they could have large plots of their own land. The South was partial to the West because they needed new land for farming. Life in the west was uncertain. They never knew what or who they might come across in their travels. A pioneer's life was dangerous and exciting

Southern America
The South was the agricultural center of the country. Most of the food was farmed in the South, and so they preferred lower tariffs. The South was filled with large farms and plantations. Often the plantations were worked by slave labor. The society was different from the North. Instead of crowed cities the South had large open plots of land and large plantations, owned by the rich white plantation owners. The people of the South saw the North as a threat to their way of life and this caused division.
The Northeastern region of the country was the center of the industrial revolution. Cities became crowded as many people came to work in factories. Since the North was exporting a lot of goods they wanted a high tariff. However, they relied on the agriculture in the South for most of their food. In these cities the rich factory owners had all the power and money. The workers were poorly paid and had bad living conditions, even for women and children.
