Here's how I see it. The REAL cause of the war was that Lincoln and the United States refused to let the states that initially formed the Confederacy leave in peace.

If they let them leave in peace then Virginia, Arkansas and most likely North Carolina and Tennessee stay in the United States and you have a much smaller and weaker Confederacy.

You can put both 1.1 million deaths and the fact that we have a unified country with a federal government that does whatever the hell it wants on Lincoln.

P.S. The non slave owners fought because they were invaded by a foreign country.
