Questions are fundamental when it comes to presenting the effects. The American Civil War results still have certain effect on the USA’s reality. Even today, it’s quite obvious. It has really changed the face of American society. Both Northern and Southern states still have their own views on the future of America and the role of the American Civil War in the country’s history. Differences in political views are still vivid in the USA, and there is no surprise that this situation is a heritage from the American Civil War. Some issues, however, weren’t solved. One of the examples a student can use is increased crime rates. Slaves that were given their freedom didn’t know what to do with it. They had no money, no master, and no work. Many of them have chosen the criminal path. These effects, as well as many others, changed the American reality forever causing conflicts over political issues even to these days. After reading the cause and effect segment, the reader has to abandon this feeling.
