Another reason is that the North wanted high tax on foreign goods and the south wanted to lower the tax, but that's because the North had more oney so they could actually pay for higher but the South couldn't aford higher tax. Cultural diffrences was another reason. The North had an education but the South didn't plaus the Southern farm and the Northerns worked in industry.
