Try as they will to wiggle out of it, Confederate apologists miss that point entirely. So they'll say "Well, slavery was bad, but...the North was trampling on the rights of the South." Trampling on their "right" to own other people as property.
Much like the Revolutionaries to the loyalists 90 years before, eh?
The entire argument is about the Tyrant's cause for the War of Aggression was because of secession, not slavery. You seem to have just implicitly agreed, thank you.

I'm not racist BUT I can't stand Lincoln. Stomped on the constitution (figuratively) and waged a war on non combatants using dictatorial tactics, and his armies committed atrocities everywhere. he is my least favorite president along with Obama. The problem is, no one believes me because one hundred ish years of brainwashing has done its job.
Just to annoy the Confederate Apologists I'm going to say Lincoln was right.
"Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough."
***Disclaimer: I love the USA and the constitution, just disagree with our (most of them) ridiculous leaders***
But Lincoln made it worse.. The CSA and the USA could co exist in alternate history if Lincoln didn't pursue the war
