That's True, in the narrowest interpretation of my comment. But to find that answer would also repersent the attitude of hundreds of thousands of other. Why did the average Confederate soldier endure the privation, the "Valley Forge" moments, that they did?
The political answers of Officers and Governmental officials that they were fighting to keep the slaves are so superficial and vacant. I want the common mans answer, who wasn't "married" to the slavery issue.
