North vs SouthProject
By Dani Montocchio
In the North, there were four distinct seasons, winter, spring, summer, and fall.
The New England coast was jagged and made it good for harbors
Farming could only take place along the coast because the soil was thin and rocky inland.
177,000 square miles of dense forest was taken away by deforestation so they would have more room to farm.
In the South, their were mild winters, and long, humid summers. There was lots of rain so there were long growing seasons.
The plains in the South had swamps and marshes which was ideal for growing rice and sugarcane.
Indigo was grown on dryland above the swaps, and tobacco and corn were farmed farther inland.
The best feature of the South, was the broad, flat rivers.
