Causes of the Civil War by jay-dub The years before the Civil War were amply filled with causes for the destruction this war brought There was no one prominent cause for this war but instead too many to list here today Differences between the North and South such as rising tensions during the years before the war abolitionists and sectionalism are just a few of the causes of the Civil War Sectionalism between the North and South was caused mainly by technology industrialization and agriculture or more broadly the economy Before 1800 the United States was an undeveloped unsophisticated third world country By 1800 we began to use machines but still only 6 of the population were living in towns with the largest city being Philadelphia with a population of 40000 people The economy began to grow twice as fast as population due to modernization but the south didnt seem to catch on because it had been so successful Why change something that is good Besides what were they to do with all their slaves It was once said the slavery is like having a wolf by the ears if you let go then you will be eaten alive by the economy The majority of the Nations millionaires were from the south including presidents speakers and politicians The north didnt let this bother them They welcomed change and the economy continued to expand In 1840 we began to use railroads and by the year 1860 there was almost 31000 miles of railroads across the nation That was more than all of Great Britain combined Also steamboats canals and roads were being used Roads were the key to tell how well an economy was doing and until now the roads had been horrible The northerners were making a profit at every end selling not only manufactured goods but agricultural goods as well Population was still increasing but farmers began to decrease because they were needed
