    The records show throughout historical background through letters, comments recorded in the Congressional Record, and much more that it was about state's rights. The taxation that was being levied on the south was lopsided, and since there was no other alternative for the south, they got out of the original contract entered into during the 1776 convention. That original contract gave them specifics rights to leave it anytime they wanted to. They were negotiating this agreement for nearly 20 years before they finally did secede.

    The average man went to war because the North invaded their homeland with guns and cannons. Most men who fought in the Civil War did not own any slaves. Slaves cost a lot of money and most farmers couldn't afford them. History has been manipulated by many people who want to attribute the Civil War to slavery but when Lincoln wrote the Executive Order called the Emancipation Proclamation, it ended slavery in the south but nowhere else. It also stipulated "If the south would cease hostilities against the Union Army, the proclamation would be null and void. Lincoln wanted to round up all of the descendants of African and put them on boats to relocate them to Central America, the Caribbean, and back to Africa but he was killed before he could get it done. It is not a well-known fact but, the slave trade of importation of blacks from Africa to the US ended around 1810. Most slaves after 1810 were bred for sale right there in the US.
