- North controlled trade - imported and distributed them to the South [controlled in terms
of profit, not product]

-- North had little effect, as more industrialized - South was rural
- South: tobacco (Virginia)
rice (South Carolina)
sugar
cotton (Æ cotton gin 1790s - no conflict to stop the Industrial Revolution)
- industry was there, then the governance to the state came later
* by 1861, supply of 90% European cotton = 50% of US exports
- North America 1619
- when abolished, South lagged behind - compromises of 1850 (fugitive slave law) between
North/South
Æ those who fled from the South to the North would be given back
* 95% of blacks in the South = 1/3 of the total Southern population
* 5% of blacks in the North = 1% of the total Northern population
- abolition = hard to define
[immediate, gradual, propertied - freedom with/out land, segregated,
voting/representative]
- "free" but there is nowhere to go, .'. reinsurfed
- Civil War Context (1861-1865)
* states rights versus federal rights
move west, leave government authority, be able to lose slave labour
- industrialization, slavery, western expansion = all together
* slavery extension territories ?

* possible consequences of abolition of slavery on the economy
* slavery ends in 1865
