2. A cheap labor force.
The Southern States had access to a cheap labor force through slavery. Some say that the Northern states (and Republicans) weren't so much humanitarians in freeing the slaves as they were out to destroy the economic advantage established in the Southern states through slavery.

Now you might say that the Republicans are the ones seeking a cheap labor force and outsourcing our jobs, ever looking for that Holy Grail in business.
