The people of the North and South had very different ways of life. They had different opinions on issues such as how to best run a government. The North believed in a strong federal government, while the South wanted the state governments to be the most powerful.
They also had differing opinions on the rights of African Americans. The North believed in treating people with equality (however their practice of equal rights had yet to be truly perfected). The South believed in the practice of slave labor and functioned on a hierarchy system. The North and the South each produced their own natural resources, which were based upon the land and climate in which they lived.
The jobs the North and South were unique too. The North was known for its large factories located in cities and the South was prized with rich farmland. Education was performed differently also. Students of the North attended classes in one-room schoolhouses, while children of wealthy plantations owners had private tutors.
In this section you will be asked to make a choice, either North or South. Think logically and you will make excellent choices.
