Northern state had no lingering affection about slavery because their fundamental economic system was and depending on the slave's labor from very first time of Quaker's settlement. In opposition, most of profit in Southern state was coming from the plantation, which was continuously preserved by the black labor. It was obvious that abolition of slavery would give Southern states massive damage in their economy by breaking apart their fundamental driving force. That's why they announced their own independence when Union wanted to make California a free state. They thought they would loose power in congress, which would naturally lead to under control.

South's economy was depended on the plantation and all the plantation used black as their labor source. Since there were many plantation and blacks as labor, without slaves, plantation would be hard to run and their economic system will be heavily damaged. Keeping the slavery was the way to survive for the south, so they decided to be separate and independent. The Fifteenth Amendment was a really big issue for blacks and white because it granted blacks right to vote. It was more close to states will be punished if they do not allow people voting depending on their race, color, and gender.

Doojin mentioned that northern states had not affection about slavery but he also said their economic system was and depending on black's labor. I am assuming he made a grammar mistake or if not, I disagree that northern state's economic system was not depended on slave's labor. I agree with south's economy was depended on slavery and if it gets abolished, their economy will fall apart.

He gave the circumstance of Confederate states of America' origin. At that time period, confederates thought they were loosing too much power in their continent. Independence was unavoidable for them to have stable life. But looking at this situation in 21th century's point of view, there are no feeling of pity or sympathy. It is morally right to find the other way to rebuild the whole economic system.

Slavery Became the Economic Engine of the South. Slavery was so profitable.With cash crops of tobacco, cotton and sugar cane, America’s southern states became the economic engine of the country. If the Confederate States of America had been a separate nation, it would have ranked as the fourth richest country in the world at the start of the Civil War. By the start of the war, the South was producing 75 percent of the world’s cotton and creating more millionaires per capita in the Mississippi River valley than anywhere in the nation

At the time, the southern part of the United States developed agriculture through slaves bought from Europe. However, the industrialization of the northern part was rapidly progressing. Since the American industry at that time was not developed compared to Europe, they wanted to develop the industry through protection trade and abolition of slavery. However, the South side is developing slaves based on agriculture, and unlike the North, they wanted the government to allow free trade and slavery. The northern and southern states demanded different demands from the government and it was a serious conflict. When Lincoln, who opposed slavery, became president, he tried to reach an agreement. However, the South first organized the coalition against the North, and eventually the Civil War. The result is that the "North", who wanted to abolish slavery, is victorious, and the slaves are liberated.

Reply Jaeho
He explains the representative revenues of each region well. The South used great slavery and gained great profits. But the North did not. Their main revenue was not slave labor. They aimed at making products related to the industry. As a result, this is the result of the economic confrontation between the industrial capitalist of the north and the great landlord of the south.
