The tragedy of the American Civil War is that it involved many Southern anti-federalists who believed the in South’s right to self-determination, but who would otherwise abolish slavery; and Northern anti-slavery advocates who would otherwise leave the South alone. The Southern plantation owners used self-determination and states’ rights to disguise their fight to retain chattel slavery; and Northern industrialists used the freedom of the slaves as an excuse to extend the rule of the bankers. Both sides were right *and* wrong, and both were tricked by their elite members to die for it.
