IMO it was about states rights. after the articles of confederation ended, the states in the south were upset because they were bigger and produced more exports because of farming. they were living happy because they had money. in the north they were unhappy during the articles because they couldn't get money because they had poor farm land, and factories wern't that big yet. im pretty sure they taxed connecticut more than they made, so the farmers there rebelled (shays rebellion?) after the articles ended the north and south didn't get along very well. the south wanted to epand slavery and the north wanted it to just stay where it was. one again the north won, so the south did what the us did in the 1700's. they decided they didn't like it the way it was, so they would create a new country... just like the us did from brittain. abe lincoln didn't want to recognise the south as a country, so they kept sending supplies to the forts in the south. the war STARTED when they sent supplies to fort sumter, and the southern farmers attacted.
correct me if im wrong.
