re: Slavery. Really? - Rex
And, oh, by the way... what would compel you to quote Lincoln's desires for preserving the Union as some sort of argument for the cause of the war? Those are SEPARATE MATTERS. The fact that you would do so indicates one of two things: you don't have a capacity for proper thinking, or you're de...

Your dip shite linked author is high on the Morrill Tariff as a cause for secession. You would think that the states WOULD BOTHER MENTIONING THAT in their Articles stating their Causes for Secession. But here's Georgia's... it's ALL about slavery, folks: [link=(http://avalon.law.yale.edu/19t...

[quote]Cause of the Civil War? You decide. [/quote] I've decided. The cause of the Civil War was the USA defending its territories against secession. The cause of secession was slavery. Listing reasons why the USA would want to keep its territories is not the cause of the war. It's an argumen...
