Thanks for your response.
Again, choosing to address the extremes does nothing to advance the discussion. Few here deny that there were other factors involved in the decision to secede. However, clearly the most important factor- the Root Cause of secession- was slavery. Though some- for whatever reason- choose to ignore it, that is supported by overwhelming, first-hand evidence.
Nobody ever said that facts have to conform to anyone's preconceived notions.
Expressing ones opinion as fact, does nothing to further the discussion. It is not a Universally accepted Fact, that all Southern States Seceded as a protection of Slavery. Border Southern States were convinced Slavery was better Protected in the Union. They were correct. Lincoln and the Republicans were far better at it, than the Confederates. Upper South States, seceded as a response to War, which had already began, before they left.
All else is just Single Causer Logic. It is not History.
