However, the south, also known as the rebels were run by President Jefferson Davis. It was a result of the decades of sectional tension between the north and the south involving slavery and state rights. Also, the growth of nationalism and in the United States was replaced by sectionalism which led to the start of the civil war. One of the major contributing factors to the start of the Civil War was slavery. Slavery was a major economic issue to the south and a major moral issue to the north.
Socially the North strengthened their own cause in the because of things like Uncle Tom's cabin; that lead to Northerners forming the Underground Railroad. Economically, the South was crushed with protection tariffs that emptied out southern pockets. The North most definitely contributed to the Political, Social and Economic issues that divided and angered the country in the time before 1861; eventually leading to Civil War.

Similarly, the South had an adverse reaction to the book, as they became convinced that the North’s main goal was to destroy slavery and the southern way of life. Slavery was the central issue causing the American Civil war. Slavery had an inextricable connection and influence in all of the tensions between the north and south.

The tension between the sides were strong which lead to the civil war, but were all caused by their disputes of slavery moving on towards the new expanding territories. Slavery was the reason the two sides were fighting if slavery should even exist and led towards the secession and the civil war. The civil war was caused by the conflict among the north and the south and the states rights and political power all over slavery. Slavery was the

Fundamental social and economic differences that inescapably developed early on between the industrial North and the agricultural South were the foundation for other issues to build on, and eventually form into full-blown war. A subsequent building block on the road to war was the clash between the territories over the power of the Federal Government and the Southern states feeling that their states’ rights were being ignored. While none of these issues on their own were enough to incite war, compounding the divide was the polarizing issue of slavery, which was in fact, was considered by the South to be a state right. It is an inescapable truth that the reasons for the Civil War are varied and complex and the nation would never be the same because of them.
And the North believed it was a “War of a Revolution”. This unfortunate war started as a result of many years of differences between the North and the South. It broke out after many years of battle building up between the two regions. The main cause of the civil war was economic, social and political differences, but most importantly slavery was the root cause of these differences. During the Civil War the economy developed between the two states.
Yes, slavery was a cause of the war, but that was not one of the central causes that popular belief has engrained in us all, however, the role that slavery had will be discussed. These reasons all-fed off each other, which eventually resulted in the bloodiest war in American history and affected almost every single American family. The first cause, that was most the popular belief for the cause of the Civil War, was the idea of slavery. Thomas Jefferson believed that slavery was, “Rock upon which the old Union would split” . While there is plenty to discuss why this was the cause of the war, the differences between the North and the South go much deeper then the question of slavery.
In the early 1800s, the United States experienced a growth of nationalism and unity, but it was replaced by sectionalism, leading to the Civil War. It has been extremely difficult to exactly pin-point the causes and effects of the war. The United States Civil War had international impact, not only because of the growing international status of the United States, but also because the war threatened world access to the South's cotton. France and Great Britain were the two main countries that had particular interest in the wars outcome, but other nations were as well affected by it. The American Civil War was a conflict over way of life.
On the other hand, the Union fought the Civil War because they wanted to end slavery and also because many people believed that the Southern states did not have the right to succeed. In conclusion, due to economic, social, political differences between the North and the South and with territorial expansion, all of this added in causing the Civil War. During the early 1860s, the Civil War of America was a major conflict between the Union, and the Confederate of States. The United States was divided into the North and the South because of economic differences, and different lifestyles. The North was become industrialized at a very fast rate and focused more on city life.
