That was a major element but saying it was the reason for their leaving the Union is every bit as revisionist as the leftists who put it all down to class struggle or other angles they particularly like. Had slavery not been an issue for the elites in the South there would have been no Civil War. The Confederacy was not an 1860s TEA party any more than Jim Crow laws were just minor regulations.
have a nice day
So you are saying that slavery was THE reason for the war? I would be very grateful to you if you could substantiate that statement. I can find no documented evidence that the War of Northern Aggression was initiated by the institution of slavery, onerous as that institution may have been.
Your reasoning is more than a little revisionist itself, wouldn’t you agree.
Have a nice day yourself
