Would there have been a Civil War if slavery was abolished?
Yes there would have been a civil war because the Union
Government was pushing for certain issues that had nothing to do
with slavery. Even if the South would have won the civil war
slavery would have still ended. Slavery was just something brought
up in discussion of arguments on the Unions comments. And to make
note of something...if you read your history you will learn that
the majority of the south was poor and didnt own slaves anyway. So
slavery needs to be deleted as a reason the Civil War went on.
There are two aspects to be considered. Firstly, the reasons for
secession. These can best be referenced in the articles of
secession for the various states. Secondly, the reason for the
Union refusing to accept the secession. This can best be
appreciated from the reasons given by President Lincoln.
