North and South Storyboard
This storyboard does not have a description.
Because of urbanization, the North made money from their many industries and manufacturing.
Immigrants came to the U.S. for better job opportunities or cheap land.
Even though African American's were free in the North, they were not given many rights. They couldn't work in factories, and they couldn't vote
The South made money by planting cash crops on plantations, such as tobacco, rice, sugar cane, indigo, and especially cotton.
In the South, rich people had slaves work on there plantations. Slaves usually harvested the crops, and separated the cotton from the seeds. This task often took a long time.
Even though some African Americans were free in the South, they were segregated. They didn't get good jobs, and their kids couldn't go to public schools. Slave owners would often try to kidnap free slaves.
