"My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery."
Yeah you keep telling yourself that it was only about slavery and that Lincoln was all he was cracked up to be. It was about states rights. Slavery, from the Confederate stand point, should have been a state decision.

I was thinking of the South's reason for secession rather than the federal government's response. Yes, Lincoln focused on preserving the union. His reasoning for going to war was to keep the union intact, or else the entire country would fail. He still saw slavery as a "a cancer that could not be immediately excised without causing the patient to bleed to death, but could also not be permitted to spread" So while the union was his priority, he also saw slavery as detrimental to its welfare.
It's the idea of the south seceding because of state's rights that gets me. South Carolina's reasons of secession included sentiments from the Articles of Confederation, which was such a terrible mode of government that it was replaced only 11 or so years later. The entirety of the declaration focuses on the South's right to slaves. There is nothing mentioned of land or taxes.
A weak argument can be made for state's rights, but the fact of the matter is those rights were the rights to subjugate a population of the American people. It may have been a state's right to choose whether or not to allow slaves (one of the major arguments at the time was whether or not territories joining the union would be slave states or not), but it completely goes against the basic American notion that "all men are created equal," All men meaning the human race rather than the privileged few. So yes, to some extent it was about state's rights, but those rights were still rooted in slavery.

The Confederate flag at the South Carolina State House is being flown at the Confederate war memorial on the State House's grounds. If there was ever a place to fly the flag, it'd be at a Confederate war memorial. I mean, it's not like the flag is hanging from the State House itself and I don't see anyone petitioning to dig up the entire monument.
