Civil War and Its Effects

From research.surnames.com

As Civil War neared, both sides were conflicted. The North wanted to prevent further secession from the South, but depended on the South’s agriculture for economic and manufacturing reason. The South stood by secession, believing it to be right; Plantation owners wanted to keep slaves and their plantation economy, being satisfied with it, but depended on the North for trade.

Plantation owners feared that their way of life was being threatened and might also change for the worse, but many didn’t support war, fearing it would put their lives and economy at risk.
