Everyone seems to forget that there were northern states where slavery was allowed, AND that the emancipation proclamation did not apply to them, only to the southern states. I agree with WestTexan on that. It was the club used by the north, but the major issues for the south were states rights, no representation, and having to pay the lions share of taxes. Kind of ironic, didn`t mind having slaves, but didn`t like being slaves to the northern states.
