Transcript of Sectionalism , States Rights &Dred Scott Case

States Rights
The North

The North side was the industrial side. Business and industry was a major role there. Even though they weren't known for agriculture, the North side produced the most grain. The North Side also opposed slavery.
States Rights
State Rights- theory that states should have all powers not given to the Federal Government and that states can control their own situations.
This debate over which powers rightly belonged to the states and which to the Federal Government became heated in the 1820s and 1830s especially under the issue of slavery being allowed in the new territories or not. As the debate continued, the North and South became increasingly different, and their desires also differed from each other.
Sectionalism is loyalty to different parties with local interests which is what divided the North and South.
