The issues that led to the war are not as simple as slavery, though it was one of the main causes, and it was not just a matter of states rights, though that was also a major issue.

Slavery was a really big deal

Slavery was a really big deal in the Civil War. It was fought over it, and both sides had different ideas about whether it should be abolished or not. The north wanted to abolish it and make it illegal, but the south wanted to keep slavery and make new states for it. The south had more slaves than the north did, so they needed more land for their slaves to live on.

The Civil War started when Abraham Lincoln was elected president of the United States (U.S.) in 1860. He was against slavery and wanted to abolish it, so many southern states seceded from the U.S., which means they left it voluntarily without being forced out by anyone else (examples: Texas & Virginia). They formed their own country called “Confederate States of America” (or CSA). Their leader was Jefferson Davis [who is no longer alive]. They were known as “rebels” because they were rebelling against their parent country’s government (the United States).

There were a lot of different reasons people wanted to be free

Some people wanted to be free because they believed it was the right thing to do. Others wanted to be free because they thought slavery was morally wrong. Still others wanted to be free because they had been slaves themselves, and they wanted their children to grow up in a world where they didn’t have to live under the threat of being sold away from their families.

But there were other reasons too: some people liked the idea of owning slaves and having them do all the hard work for them; some people didn’t like the idea that they were being told what to do by someone who wasn’t white; and some people just didn’t see any reason why one person should own another person when there are plenty of jobs that don’t require owning someone else!

In short: there were lots of different reasons why people wanted freedom during this time period—and those reasons can help you understand why this country is so diverse today!

Many Northerners disagreed with slavery but that led to other disagreements

The North thought that slavery was wrong and wanted to end it but disagreed on how to do it. They created a compromise that allowed slavery to exist as long as there was no more slave trade. Abraham Lincoln campaigned on ending slavery but when he got into office he did not follow through with his promise because he did not want to lose the South’s support in congress.

The issues leading up to the Civil War were complex

The issues that led to the war are not as simple as slavery, though it was one of the main causes, and it was not just a matter of states rights, though that was also a major issue.

The issue of slavery was not the only issue that led to the Civil War. There were many other important factors at play within society that caused Southern states to secede from the Union.
