Test: SAT II US History


What is the primary reason that slavery was more prevalent in the South than in the North?

The bicameral legislature of Massachusetts passed a bill outlawing slavery, and the other Northern colonies promptly followed suit.

The British government forbade slavery in Northern colonies.

The North's economy didn't rely heavily on agriculture, but the plantation economy of the South required large reserves of workers to turn a profit.

Northern colonists abhorred what they viewed as the backwardness of the South and believed slavery to be morally wrong.

The personal campaigning of luminaries such as William Penn and Lord Baltimore against slavery gained a following only in New England.
