Sectionalism in the United States
The purpose of this project was to teach us about the sectionalism of America so that we obtain knowledge of the different lifestyles, structural and social constructs, and the customs and political values of the north and south, and also how the industry and workers of the north benefited slave systems, so that sectionalism eventually led to the United States Civil War.
Sectionalism is the idea that one person has an allegiance to a smaller group of people, and not to the entire country. There were three parts to Nationalism in the 19th century. There was economic sectioning, political sectioning and social sectioning. Ultimately, this division of belief led to the bloodiest war in American history: the American Civil War (1861-1865).
