The great economic and social divisions between the North and South in the first half of the 1800s eventually led to the Civil War. During those prewar years, the North industrialized, urbanized, and became more reliant on wage labor. In contrast, the South remained a rural, agricultural society that focused on slavery to harvest cash crops like cotton and tobacco. Historians have often said that due to the huge differences between the two regions, the Civil War was inevitable. What do you think could have been done, if anything, to prevent the war? Also consider the issue of slavery, which be

    The build up of the war was because of people trying everything they could to prevent the inevitable. Was it 100% certain to happen? Who knows. But I think that because people try to stop it from happening, the divide got bigger and things got nastier.

    So basically, at first, things weren't so bad. But as time went on, the fighting built up and up until the war broke out. At one point, things were so bad that a fight broke out in congress ( a senator beat another with a cane I think?)

    Okay.. I also found this online (on Brainly): The differences between the North and South were great both socially, economically, and politically. It is difficult to see the institution of slavery being ended in the South without the threat of violence or actual violence. The institution of slavery was believed to be integral to the Southern economy that it is hard to imagine it going away through compromise at that point in history. So I'll combine and reword/paraphrase these and cite them. That wouldn't be plagiarism right?
