Yes it was the treatment after the war that resulted in the south being behind the north in development.  It was 1933 before electricity came to the mountains where I grew up. Not far from cold mountain.  Many of the things that the south is condemned for were the fault of the north.  Andersonville was the result of the north refusing to parole prisoners.  The south would have gladly sent them home.  No southerner ever brought a single slave across the Atlantic.  Those ships were owned by entrepeneurs from Conn and Mass.  Abolition was not in the picture until importation of slaves was forbidden by law in the early 1800's.  It is always about power, control and money.  The war between the states was no different.  nice to meet you
