3 Causes of the Civil War
  • Sectionalism: As the North began to industrialize, it became increasingly reliant on wage laborers.

  • States’ Rights: The old debate over federalism had never really died. Because of its higher population growth, the North would increasingly dominate the federal government. The South responded by claiming that the individual states should have more power to make decisions over issues such as slavery.
