The North was mainly industrialized and heavily populated. The

South was agricultural and had pockets of populated areas, but was

mainly rural. The Southern states relied heavily on exporting

cotton and other produce to Europe and, in order to make a profit

on these exports, relied on slave labor. The North was also more in

favor of the National government having more power than the states.

While in the south people were more in fovor of states rights and

power being greater than that of the national government.
