Best Answer

Long before the conflict between the North and South, expanded into a civil war, of sorts, US President Lincoln, wanted at all reasonable costs at that time to avoid bloodshed. He made it clear that the Federal government would not raise a military army to harm the South or its institution of slavery. The Confederacy was not ready for a war. However, good judgment did not prevail. The assault and capture on Fort Sumter in the Charleston harbor started a chain of events that would become known as the US Civil War.
