Slavery had everything to do with the civil war. The fact that the parties involved were more worried about it being the economic cornerstone of the south than about its actual toll on humanity is irrelevant. If you're going to say "states rights," you'd be correct...if you're talking about how some states demanded the rights to keep their slaves. This was a war the nation's framers absolutely saw coming during the writing of the Constitution, but chose to kick down the road because they believed it less pressing than imminent war with Britain.

+1 #26, I live in the northern part of the United States, and I want to let it be known I am not speaking from a biased view. I live in a town with many veterans, from all around the country of whom I respect immensely. But, there is lots of controversy of a recently hung confederate flag. Many call it 'non-nationalist' or 'disrespectful', and mostly known, racist. Yes, a flag is a flag, which represents and shows loyalty and respect for a certain territory. However, the confederate flag is over 150 years of age, where there is no one still alive from that time (obviously.) I have grown to know this flag, as I have met many people who research and devote their lives to learning about the civil war. I will not get into the details of the civil war, but the flag is, and should be a respected part of our country. We went to war with Japan, Germany, and all the other Axis nationalities, but should we disrespect and hate their culture and flag for that reason? I sure would hope not.

43: "We went to war with Japan, Germany, and all the other Axis nationalities, but should we disrespect and hate their culture and flag for that reason?" You do realize that Germany was flying a very different flag at that time, right? I don't think that the best way to win your argument is to associate the Confederate flag with the Nazi flag.

It is impossible to make the argument that the Civil War had *nothing* to do with racism. Even if you're arguing that the war was due to states' rights and oppressive economic policy, what economic factors do you think the Confederate states were fighting for?
