My stance to believing that is for the following reasons, in the th century there was a huge misunderstanding and separation between the South and the North.
Slavery is commonly believed to be the root of the divide, but in reality there were a number of other causes leading to the split of the Union. Slavery was a point of contention, but as part of the larger issue of states' rights. The people of Georgia, after an equally full and fair and deliberate hearing of the case, have declared with equal firmness that they shall not rule over them.
Cotton, rice, tobacco and the indigo plant were key products grown in largely monoculture farms that required labour from numerous slaves. Put another way, it was well known that Lincoln was anti-slavery, but both during his campaign for office and after his election, he insisted it was never his intention to disturb slavery where it already existed.
For a time it appeared the practice was on its way to extinction. The North relied on wage laborers with the new machine age economy while the South relied heavily on slaves.
And with the new tariff putting foreign goods out of financial reach, Southerners were forced to buy these products from the North at what they considered exorbitant costs. However, critics say that Abraham Lincoln played the inequality card to gain an upper hand in the war against the Southern States.
There is the possibility that war might have been avoided, and a solution worked out, had there not been so much mistrust on the part of the South.
In effect, the issue of states rights caused many states to do just that and to form their own group called The Confederacy or The Confederate States of America.
