Tension and Differences in North and South America Tension and Differences between North and South America Tension and differences between the North and the South, U.S. History.
One of the big stories in U.S. history is the tension and differences between the North and the South. In 1861-1865, these tensions even led to our Civil War. Our final essay question is: has the story of the United States between 1877 and today been one of growing national unity or one of continued and powerful regional differences? Argue your case, taking into consideration race, gender, economy, politics, culture, and other pertinent factors. Compromises concerning slavery, states’ rights, and economical issues were created to satisfy the North and South, but were not sufficient enough to ease the differences to prevent the Civil War.
