    Not much. The War of Northern Aggression was more about tariffs and States Rights.

    It wasn't only the South that Lost. It was all of us.

    The War of Southern Aggression was all about money first the Southern Planters thought they could do better financially without the North.

    Slavery was an after thought.

    slavery was not really the issue until 1863. Lincoln said if "If I could win the war by not freeing any slaves I would do it, if I could win by freeing all of them I would"
