Storyboard Text

  • The North relied heavily on manufacturing guns and other materials with factory work to make money, which also provided jobs for the citizens of the cities. More and more people flooded to the cities, as the North became more urbanized than ever before.
  • People in the North made a living by working in factories, desk jobs or farming in more rural areas.
  • The life of free blacks in the North was more preferable than that for them in the South. They were allowed to work, live free and thrive; though not perfect, it was an opportunity many would take.
  • Economy in the South was reliant upon plantations, slaves and growth of cash crops such as cotton.
  • Slaves were subject to slave codes, restrictions on their nonexistent right to life, and endured harsh work and treatment from their owners
  • Free African American slaves had to constantly worry about the possibility of being returned or stolen to serve a slave master, and they also were not able to get a job good enough to support a living.
