In the years preceding the US Civil War, the Northern US States had a high degree of industrialization. There were relatively few Northern States that depended on slave labor. This became an important factor in the outcome of the US Civil War. The North was able to produce weapons, grow crops, and increase its growth by its high level of industry.
