It fell into a shambles during the war and was devastated in all ways following the war.

Above is correct the largest reason being that the North took out all supply lines to the South via railroads and disrupted import by sea of which the South depended on. Not only did it ruin the economy it pretty much stopped any fighting chance the South had as it also stopped supply to it's army. After the war new laws were introduced that were aimed at punishing the South for the war. Obviously the law abolishing slavery was one that hurt the South the most.

Southerners were nearly completely reliant on cotton at the time of the civil war. While the north industrialized, the south hung on to the old form of society, which meant slavery still existed. Southerners, thinking that the North wanted to get rid of their style of life (abolitionist movement, tariffs), tried to seceed from the Union to attempt to preserve itself.

The Southerners' fought the Civil War in an effort to promote their ideal of states' rights and to preserve their perceived right to keep slaves. Many Southerners felt that each state had the right to decide whether slavery would be legal there.

since the south needed slaves to have a better economy and the north used immigrants, who got paid, the two economies clashed when the Northern abolitionists tried to ban slavery since Southeners needed slaves to help with cotton
