ESSAY

15. ANS:

The North and the South, with their different economic systems, were competing for new lands in the Western territories. At the same time, a growing number of Northerners wanted to restrict slavery. Even the Southerners who disliked slavery resented Northern interference in their affairs. These differences between the North and the South grew into sectionalism, and this exaggerated loyalty to a particular region split the country.
