In the years prior to the Civil War, the North and the South emerged with contrasting views about the state of the Union. This study examines the relationship between the economic ideologies of the South and the central causes of the American Civil War. The time period of 1850 to 1861 surveys the years that were critical in the development of new legislation regarding the state of slavery in the Union and when the South began formulating ideas towards secession.
