The above is one opinion.Once again, the south did not go to war over tariffs but because it had declared its independence from the Union. War and secession are different things. When the south bombarded Ft. Sumter in April 1861, they did so because they had declared their independence from the Union and demanded that the fort be abandoned which the Union refused. The CSA viewed the occupation of the fort by federal forces to be a violation of sovereignty.
There are others.
