States rights is inclusive of all areas, not just "slavery" ... I'm dumbfounded that a rational person jumps to the conclusion we are wanting to some how go back to slavery ... the overarching reason given was in fact States Rights and the only item states rights were being discussed about was in fact the item of slavery ... both of you are correct but your friend needs to understand that the Civil War was also a Constitutional battle to correct a wrong concerning freedom and equality among all men ....
