They led to the Civil War
The Civil War of the 1860s fought between the North (Union) and the South (Confederates).
Geographically the South had fertile soil and climate suitable for plantation. Crops like cotton, tobacco, and rice were grown. Many big farms and plantation relied on slaves as a source of labours. In the North, many large cities with flourishing industries established. The North considered slavery as an evil practice, while the South encouraged it as legal.
The Southern economy based on farming. The Southern states depended on the labours to work in plantations. For the planters, slavery was the backbone of the economy of the South.
Transportation relates to the civil war because of differences that the North and South had. The North focused on industrialization while the South focused on exports of cotton.
