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.
