There are many causes to the civil war. Lets start with the south. There are many causes to the civil war. Lets start with the south. The first reason was slaves. Many people believed that slaves were only one eight of a person! Slaves could be traded and removed from there family. There wife children gone! Now onto the north. The north believed that slavery was wrong. They though that it was inhumane and it is. And they also had no need for slaves because they worked into factory's.The second reason is states rights. You may be asking what the heck states rights is? States right is when the state has more power inside of it than the government. Why did they want states rights. Because it make it so they could have slaves even if the government did not want them to.The third reason is that they wanted lower taxes on foreign goods. Why? Because the south got most of its goods from other country's.Another reason is that they spent most of their time in the fields starting at a young age to and did not get much time at school and were less educated than the north.My last reason for the south is that they depended on cotton. They would turn it into find cotton and sell it. And the south had a lot of cotton and I mean a lot. They had so much that the cost to buy it was very low. Reasons for the north.Now onto the north. The north believed that slavery was wrong. They though that it was inhumane and it is. And they also had no need for slaves because they worked into factory's. They though that people with darker skin were one hole of a person just like the lighter skin toned people. They though of them as equals.They wanted federal rights. And as you probably guessed that means the government would have more power over the states so they could out law slavery.
They north wanted Abraham Lincoln to win because he would help stop slavery.The south did not and left because he was elected president because they knew he would stop slavery. The south wanted Jefferson Davis to win.
The south had very strong and bold generals like Robert E. Lee, but the south did have Ulissys S. Grant.
The south's main advantage was there were fighting on there own land, and they had a real cause. Slavery. The north wanted the country to be hole again.
The south's disadvantages is that they had to import all of there goods. The north's disadvantage is that there cause was not as strong as the south's
The war started 1861and ended in 1865 In the end of the war the north won.
