Did the North give the South its debt after Civil War ended?

In discussions with a colleague of mine many years ago, concerning the American Civil War (aka the War Between the States), he mentioned that “... the North left/gave all the [financial] debt to the South”. He has since passed on but I’ve often wondered what he meant by that statement. Has anyone a clue to this reference? To its meaning and validity?
