Sectionalism Between the North and South

Sectionalism is what you believe in relation to your region.
  • 1800s sectionalism was the division of the north and the south

  • South focused on plantation agriculture and they used slaves
  • Southerners thought slavery was fair
  • Northerns thought slavery was unfair

Fight for Power

The north and south fight for power.
  • Both regions wanted their states to be more powerful than the other.
  • The more free states they had the more free power they would have in government.
