Five myths about why the South seceded

There are a variety of reasons cited for the South seceding  from the Union and beginning the Civil War. So that everyone is clear,  read the article linked above. The South left the Union over the issue of slavery. Southerners can put whatever spin on this subject, but the record reflects the truth.  Don't be fooled!
