Civil War President Abraham Lincoln had just been elected US President when the first Southern state of South Carolina in December of 1860 seceded. That state would other Southern states and become united as the Confederate States of America. Part of the reason for secession was due to the South's concerns that Lincoln would abolish slavery entirely. Since Lincoln had not been inaugurated when the states seceded, though, James Buchanan was technically President at the very start. Jefferson Davis was president of Confederacy.
Since it would take the usual long process to amend the US Constitution, to abolish slavery, the election of Abraham Lincoln was not a specific cause for secession. The UShad said slavery was constitutional. Also, President elect Lincoln vowed to let slavery alone where it already existed.
The South did consider Lincoln an enemy, but their secession had deeper toots then a new president that only gathered 31% of the votes.
During the US Civil War, the US President was Abraham Lincoln.
