Why does the poorest states in the USA tend to be more Protestant, while the richest states tend to be more Catholic? Does history explain this?

Forgive me if this is not the correct board to post this, but I am in search of paintings of historic battles - be they maritime or land battles. Air battles are OK from WWI, but I would prefer to keep things in the Imperial and Napoleonic eras. I want to decorate my study with these.

That also being said, it is a small bedroom I am converting into a study. One whole wall will be a bookshelf, the rest will be decor and so forth. Thinking about putting in some sort of wood paneling or maybe damask wallpaper.

Going by this book's (5 stars on Amazon, recommended reading by many American educational institutions) methodology, how many people has capitalism killed?
>inb4 capitalism is an abstract concept it can't kill anyone
Going by this book's methodology, it can, as it talks about people communism has killed.

Early South American Countries

What I exactly would like to find out is what struggles differentiated these countries.(apart from Caudillismo which was a constant)
While these states had a hard time forging an identity (for example most Argentinians agree that the notion of Argentina wasn't set until the italian migrations in the 20th century) its far easier to see their differences in the conflicts that dominated their politics, for example hte unitarian v federal debate was big in Colombia while nobody gave a damn about it in Peru, which was busy having coups to determine if the constitution would be liberal or protectionist.
What do you guys think

Spain was the largest trading partner of England in the XIII century

And the Spanish, specially castilian merchants the largest group of immigrants to the country. That's right, Castile was England's gateway to the Mediterranean, and in the 13th century trade between the two kingdoms flourished like no other. Below I will attach some quotes from some books that deal with this subject, curious to say the least. From pelts to dried fruit to wheat were the types of products that the Castilians sold throughout England.
