NORTH AGAINST SOUTH
The North had freezing winters and hot, humid summers. There was very hilly and rocky land there. Some states in the North like New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey had broad rivers that deposited rich soil over the plains. The North also had a lot of factories. Then they got more and more machines that increased the rate at which agricultural goods could be produced. Transportation also increased in the North. They made roads better, they had a bunch of train tracks, and they had boats powered by steam engines. The North was full of non-wealthy people.

The south had mild winters and long, hot, humid summers. They also had really thick forests. Along the South's coast , their plains were dotted with swamps and marshes. A lot of white southerns worked on their own farms. But when the cotton gin was invented they didn't have to do as much work. Transportation in the South was simple. They used steam powered boats. Goods and people traveled on the steady rivers of the South. There were three levels of class in the South. The first one was the wealthy people, then the white farmers, then slaves. Slaves were not treated equally in the South.
