Southern between 1830 and 1860
America is historically considered as new land as most of its people migrated from other parts of the world like Africa, Asia, and Europe. The economic, political, religious, and cultural aspects of the country were divided into two with the Northerners having a different culture from that of the Southerners. Slave trade was very prominent in the south but less in the north. The economic conditions of the north had grown and developed earlier on before those of the South. It can be revealed that the economic, institutional, and social patterns of the south were reinforced by the economic growth, change, and prosperity of the southern society. At the center of the already present institutions was the institution of slavery which affected laws, customs, economics, as well as the overall region’s relationships with the entire nation. This is because despite that slavery was found to be very common in the country, not all people were practicing is. The aspect of free wage labor system in the Western world brought about transition of the South from a society with slaves to a slavery society. In this case, human beings were traded as slaves and were forced to work very hard in the farms for the benefits of their masters. The increased gains and profits gained by the southerners made them become very aggressive to any person who dared challenged their institutions.
Slavery was an institution that was used not only for economic purposes but also in ensuring that the slave owners were largely helped with their domestic chores. It is important to note that slavery influenced largely the economy of the South in different ways by increasing the profits margin in the production of cotton.Southern between 1830 and 1860 Most of the slaves were of African origin and hence their culture had a lot to do with the African culture. Religion played a very significant role to the slaves as it encouraged them to endure within their miseries by giving them hope that one day they would become free. The slave owners used Christianity teachings in trying to make their slaves docile and more cooperative.
