Transcript of Similarities Between the North & South/Triggers of Civil War
"A Peculiar Institution"
Similarities Between the North & South
Both the northern and southern states used the "Democratic Model" of government.
Government was divided into three branches: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial
Both were considered Republican forms of government, but the South's idea of a Republic had not changed since colonial times-the North's had.
The North wanted "free soil" and the South wanted "the right of property" which included slaves.
Both the North & South relied heavily on farming-they used the same techniques
North raised wheat and corn; the South raised rice, tobacco, and cotton
Their economies were linked. Cotton was harvested in the South and transported to the North for production
Railroad investment in the North had a good deal to do with transporting goods from the South.
Outside of slavery, the social structure in the North and South were very similar.
Both had: a large lower class, a smaller middle class, and even smaller upper class.
While the majority of southerners sympathized with slave owners, most, like their northern counterparts, did not own slaves.
The north did business with slave states, often distrusted abolitionists, and cared little for blacks.
Blacks in the North were largely free, but not equal
