Join Art In History and explore the Civil War; which resulted from a difference of opinion regarding slavery, a key issue of the war. Two very different cultures within the various states (North & South) tested the system the founding fathers created.
The Northern States were industrialized while the Southern States were mostly agriculture. The two factions had differing views in how they should be governed. The North favored a national federal central government, while the Southern States favored a regional government protecting states' rights. Furthermore, the southern states believed they should be able to nullify any federal laws they did not like. These differences, along with opposing views on slavery, eventually fueled the U.S. Civil War.
One of the slaves' prized possessions (both in life and death) were their face jugs. Each one formed individually, they were made to be used as a container primarily for drinking liquids. Most slaves were not allowed to place headstones on their graves, so in addition the face jugs also served as a grave marker.
