5. Differences in the south and the north
From the 19th century on, the biggest difference between the North and the South was the adoption of segregation laws by the former Confederate states. These laws condemned blacks to an inferior status. This discrimination occurred throughout the nation, but the Southern states punished those who did not follow the racial order imposed by the law. Blacks in the South were denied the right to vote.
