War Facts & Causes

The War for Southern Independence was caused by many factors but the primary cause was the thirst for money and power by Lincoln and his Northern Industrialist supporters.

In 1860, Southern tariffs accounted for approximately 80% of the Federal governments’ revenue. It was to insure this flow of money from the South that Lincoln sacrificed the lives of over 700,000 Americans.
