The southern states were plantation states, consisting of large work forces of african-americans who were brought over to north america by slave-traders. The slaves were either purchased from tribes who had captured enemy tribesman after battling, or captured by force. At the time a work force of slaves was the primary means for planting, growing, and harvesting crops. This method was used commonly before the invention of engines and farming machinery that could easily and more cost effectively work more efficiently than the slaves. Slaves were a part of the southern economy, even with effort to free them by the northern states, the practice of slavery would have expired on its own with more superior inventions and methods.
