I didn't say anything about their motivation for enlisting. The reason for the secession was the election of an abolitionist president. The reason they died was to end slavery. What an individual soldier's motivation for enlisting is irrelevant. There were 365,000 killed on the NORTH. If I were including both sides I would have said 600,000.
