Nope.....the war was caused by the north needing the south to support and encourage the econimical growth of the north. They needed the cotton, they needed the sea ports, and so on.
The south definatly, like now, have had their own sort of people. Nothing bad, Just differnt from the north. It is hard to explain.
The south wanted to stop being controled by the north becasue as a nation, the north, is what propelled the United "nations" even to the point of such slauter of human life that it is incomprehenable.
Ab Lincoln would enject the, what they wanted to have the world & the future to procieve is that it was, a totally honorable war to free slaves. Think about it. Why would nothern mothers and fathers send their son's to war to just end slavery? Think about the money was spent to save one group of people? Some northern people had slaves. How reasonable is this reason for war. Would you of sent off your husband and son's to die to save a people you didn't really have anything to do with?
Sad, but true, often the north would throw out the slavery issue to make some people think that it was a honorable war to reacue a population of people who were slaves? It isn 't all that long ago that this happened, compared to the time of the universe. It wasn't long ago that our country was founded ,compared to the history of mankind.
I have been in the south and I can feel, even to this day, the feeling that the south has against the north. It lingers to the point of being felt by me a person from the north.
You show wisdom to ask this question.
We can't change the past. We can learn from it.
