What is "sectional discord"?
I am doing a DBQ and i'm not quite sure what sectional discord is... it is part of the question. So if anyone could clarify, that would be great.

I take it you are doing a historical based DBQ.
A prime example of sectional discord is the interpretation
of the U.S. Constitution in regards to the issue of slavery.
Part I at this site explains the discord over the preeminence
of federal authority over state authority in consideration of the
will of the people versus the will and intent of the Constitution.
