In the North, many manufacturing industries was well established, agriculture was limited to small farmer, the South’s economy was based on a system of large scale farming was done by the small scale slaves to grow some crops like cotton and tobacco. Memorial Day comes from that war which is created by such conditions Growing other items was not allowed to those slavery people during 1830s and northern slavery’s extension into the new western territories created a fear in the mind of the southern people to fear that slavery which was present in America.
