9781455616435: Why the Civil War Was Not about Slavery (and Why Americans Need to Believe It Was)

The economic and moral reasoning behind the Civil War. For years, many Americans have named slavery the sole cause of the Civil War. However, author Donald Livingston seeks to illuminate the moral challenge of slavery as it existed for all Americans, not only Southerners. He examines the North's motives for invasion rather than the South's reasons for seceding and proves that the South had ample means to effect emancipation in its own time.
