Answer these two questions please 1. What aspects of the remarkable economic development of the US in the first half of the 19th century contriubted to the sectional crisis of the 1850's? 2. The nativism of the 1850's that surfaced so strongly in the Know-Nothing Partu was eclipsed by the crisis over slavery. Why was it strong in the 1850s and why it has emerged since then?

Q1. At the conclusion of the Mexican-American War, military conquest had added 1.2 million square miles of new territory to the US...
1. The Industrial Revolution (you can also use the Market Revolution - the book of the same name (author is Sellers) is a tough read and shouldn't be taken without large grain of salt, but it'll give you a good start) created the divide between the agricultural south and industrial north that was as much (according to some, more) responsible for the Civil War than slavery. 2. Nativity movements are, at least nominally, about competition for resources. Same for just about every other anti-something movement. (Irish, about the same time; Asians on the west coast, beginning with the construction of the transcontinental railroad (Stephen Ambrose - Nothing Like it in the World); racism in the North in the 20s and afterward)
