Well the question was why the country remained devided.  The American Pharoah would not let the south leave peacably.  The south offered to feed Ft. Sumter the US gov't refused.  The south offered to pay for the federal facilities in the south and were rebuffed.  At the end of the war the gov't refused to seat southern reps. because the states had left the Union when the war was fought because the north said the south could not leave the Union.  The northerners who came south were the defacto overseers of reconstruction and the seizing of farms and the economic punishment was not done by the army but rather under the auspices of the conquerors.   The undeveloped rural south was abandoned by the overnment.
