Was the Civil War About Slavery?

A uniformed man from a right wing organisation asking if the war was about slavery: I admit, I assumed this would be yet another Lost Cause argument about “states’ rights” and “protective tariffs”. The more I read of the Lost Cause the more revolted I am with the arguments of those who intentionally or mealy-mouthedly support it. Imagine my surprise and satisfaction that the topic here is dealt with very directly and very pragmatically.
