In fact, it's THE THING that caused the Civil War Don't let anyone tell you the Civil War was a 'states' rights' issue. The Civil War was fought over slavery. Period. Any other explanation is a whitewashing of the facts. Here's a quote from Alexander Stephens, Vice President of the Confederacy: “Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its corner- stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition.” - Alexander Stephens, The Corner-Stone Speech, 1861 (https://dontknowmuch.com/2017/11/slavery-was-the-corner-stone-civil-war-primary-documents/) This disgusting speech leaves little doubt that the Civil War was about slavery, first and foremost. We've got some work to do. As Senta said, schools teach it as a states' rights issue. And unfortunately, it's working. According to the Pew Research Center, more people think the main cause of the Civil War is states' rights - 48% - rather than slavery - 38%.
