about both Northern and Southern society prior to the Civil War, what are the main differences (economic sytstems, treatment of women, religious experimentation, views on the worth of people meaning the mentality of the planter v. the abolitionist) and what makes them so significant so as to eventually cause a Civil War?

Well, Northern Society was, on average, filled with a majority of industry outside of agricultural significance, and began to form major industries, large companies, and new goods and inventions, which caused smaller industries to go under. Under Jacksonian democracy, America was self-sufficient, and expanding. But, the strt of seperations was caused partially in the 1820s-1830s in the sense that the British Companies were able to trade for cheaper than the local companies, making the internal goods more expensive. The Southern States did not buy goods from the Northern States because the British were selling their goods for less, which caused the public outcry during the Tariff of Abominations in the South. The North wanted the tariff because it would raise the price of British goods, while the South disliked the tariff because of the fact that instead of saving money, they'd still have to pay more either way, causing the economy to plumit in the South. All of this was occuring while the Western Economy was barely moving into development
The treatment of women were extrememly different in the North vs. South. The North needed women to have children, and work in the factories (although neither was required), while the South was more somewhat laid back. Women in the South were often plantation owners' wives, or, to avoid stereotype, they worked in shops or the house if the servants/enslaved persons were not implied. The Northern women were also, in many cases, similar to Southern women in the sense that they were all typically socialites.
Slavery and States' Rights have been in question since the beginning of time. Although the cases of slavery in the South were often extremely brutal in the sense of inprisonment, and beatings, and often torturing, that was not always the case, and was often a sense of stereotyping. The North often used the few extreme cases against the South, using them as propaganda against slavery, which is although wrong, it is also wrong to treat a region within an assimilation of states as though it were a treasonous area only because of the extreme cases of slavery. However, in many of the states, counties, and townships, it was considerred highly unsocial and unpopular to beat, wrongfully inprison, and/or torture slaves. For example, many slaves were beaten and many were tortured/wrongfully inprisoned, but, there were and always will be cases of slaves who were relatively well-treated, and well-loved b their owners. I remember visiting a family in the 1960s who had lived in a plantation since the 1810s. They gave me a tour of their house, and one of the servants was even born there (she was their cook, her great-grandmother was one of the slaves, who lived with the family as though she were a family member after the Civil War had ended), and she lived in a small house that was on the property. Reconstruction had previously ravaged the plantation that by the time I went there was 1/4 the size of the height of its growth, but many of the servants who were previoulsy slaves, still refused to leave the plantation. I was even given a tour of where the Old servants' quarters were, and the mud shacks that are what most people thinkof as servants' quarters had never existed. There were a total of about 6 or 7 houses that were the same since 1812 as servants' quarters, and I must admit, they weren't too far from what is a ranch or even maybe a farmhouse in modern standards, a lot better than what I grew up in, and larger by about 3 rooms. But, anyways, the tension of slavery was less existant in the 1820s, thanks to Henry Clay and the Missouri Compromise.
