Briefly explain the cultural divide between the American South and the North.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 22nd May, 2015, 03:57: PM
The cultural cleavage between the American South and the North was conditioned by the difference between the economic realities of life between these two regions. While the American South was largely agrarian with vast plantations of cotton and a conservative white population, the North was more industrialised, urbanised and liberal. The North had more cities and towns where people from different parts of the world mingled and participated in the cosmopolitan microcosm of city life. The South however remained steeped in the orthodox social and political mores of racial superiority and white supremacist tendencies.
