Effects of Civil War on South and North

The effects of the civil war for the south were much different for the north. This difference is interesting because it shows how different the two regions are from each other. In the South, there was economic devastation and with the issue of abolishing slavery, people start to wonder what will happen with the cotton industry, as that is the leading economic drive for the south. On the other hand, in the North, the Civil War is more of a time for economic prosperity. The meat-packing industry grew, the woolen mills were producing more blankets and uniforms for the military, etc. This all just shows how the Civil War was a positive war for the north and negative for the south.
