Actually that was a very SMALL issue. The North was just as racist as the South, if you think for a moment the North would fight the South over the issue of slavery you are sadly mistaken.<quoted text>
Your ignorance is amazing
For Lincoln personally it wasnít, for Lincoln it was for preserving the union, and why was the union split up? Slavery and the continuation of slavery, the war was fought because the south seceded, and why did they secede?
The beloved "Emancipation Proclamation" didn't even free all the slaves, it only freed the slaves in territories not controlled by the Union. Those portions of the South that had been secured by the Union were still allowed to have their slave's.
No,slavery had little to do with it. For Lincoln it was about preservation and control. There was NO legal precedent for the war, our very existence as a nation was owed to the belief in secession. In a sense, Lincoln was no better than King George. Lincoln claimed it was his kingdom and none could leave, the only difference is Lincoln won.
Your very simplistic understanding shows that you stopped learning sometime after the 4th grade.
