9 Civil War: Causes STATES’ RIGHTS The 10 th Amendment to the United States Constitution states that all powers not given to the Congress by the Constitution (Art. I, Sec. 8) are reserved to the states, States' Rights. Because the power to decide issues regarding slavery is not given to the Congress in the Constitution, the southern states felt that is was within their power to determine the issue. ©2012, TESCCC

10 The northern states agreed with the Federal Government and wanted to abolish slavery. Their economy was based on industry and did not rely on slavery. Very few families owned slaves. The northern states represented the Union. Civil War: 1861-1865 Northern States The Union ©2012, TESCCC

11 Civil War: 1861-1865 The Confederacy ©2012, TESCCC The southern states did not agree with the Federal Government. They believed that state’s rights were infringed (states having the power to govern themselves). Their economy was based on agriculture (farming and raising livestock) and relied heavily on slavery. Many plantation owners used enslaved people to work in their homes and fields.

12 Civil War: Causes Tariffs The South was producing cotton and selling it to the North as well as to England. Northern manufacturers were producing cloth they wanted to sell in the South. However it was more expensive for the North to produce goods than England because they were better industrialized. The North wanted a protective tariff placed on imported goods thus raising England’s prices on goods. ©2012, TESCCC

13 Civil War: Causes Tariffs Southerners and Northerners both would have to pay more for manufactured goods imported from overseas, which would help sales of products made in the U.S. The South protested that the national government did not have the right to do this. However, the Constitution gives the Congress the power to pass import taxes (export taxes are forbidden) ©2012, TESCCC
