"So without slaves the South would have been dominated by small yeoman farmers to the most part isolated from the everyday political and economic world. .......
The North was industrializing and would have have an even larger shadow over the agrarian South."


Now, this interests me.  A larger shadow, and perhaps too poor of a South to fight back?  Thus, no war?  But surely, secession would have been attempted.....

Really great discussion, all!
