Write a well-organized essay comparing the North and the South and predicting what you think will happen in the West. Remember that you will be graded on content, organization, and mechanics (grammar, punctuation, spelling, and sentence structure)
Compare and contrast the northern and southern United States between 1800 and 1850. Write four or five paragraphs about the similarities and the differences between the two regions. Your essay should include discussions of the economy, social structure, daily life, and social attitudes. In your concluding paragraph, predict how society and attitudes will develop in the West. Which region would the West be more likely to side with on important issues?
