The war was not about freeing blacks

Agreed.

was not about slavery at all.

Delusional.

It's not delusional at all. The War of Southern Independence was a war that was fought for reasons that stretched back to the nullification crisis of 1832, it stemmed directly from a chain of events that began with Calhoun's resignation. And the crisis of 1832 had nothing to do with slavery, it had everything to do with tariffs and it was what lit the spark.
