It was about sovereignty. It was about several states joining a union
for expressed purposes, and none other.
If a few states wanted slaves, there were things some other states
could have done to discourage that practice.
Assaulting, with deadly force, those people who you disagree with,
has nothing to do with liberty and everything to do with tyranny.
Did you miss the part of Dilorenzo's piece where he mentions the
other countries that abolished slavery without fighting a huge war?
1st order of business was, as the south demanded, remove the federal
troops from land on SC. It's all well and good that the feds took
that land (Ft. Sumter) and called it theirs, but it was still within
the physical jurisdiction of the sovereign state of south carolina.
The south "attacked" the troops in the fort after demanding the
troops leave the fort.
