Essay from the year 2013 in the subject History - America, grade: 1,3, University of Warwick (Department of American Studies), course: North America: Themes and Problems, language: English, abstract: As discussed a myriad of times already, the causes of the American Civil War are complex and generally known. For the purpose of this essay a three-armed scale shall be considered a visual model about the interrelation of the single factors. The three different trays of the scale contain socio-cultural, economic, and politic conflicts between the North and the South of the United States, while the centre pillar stands for the institution of slavery. The essay argues that a solid basis, namely the Constitution, could have kept the scale stable but, in fact, this very basis had been shaken actively.
