The funny thing is,they also explicitly forbade any state from banning slavery in their own state, when making their constitution, sounds pretty anti state rights to me.

They also used Federal power to kidnap any slaves who managed to escape to states without slavery totally trampling over the rights of anti-slavery states. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fugitive_Slave_Act_of_1850

Confederate apologists make the Confederacy's motives to be significantly more complex than they were, even though they weren't subtle at all about what they wanted.

Confederacy: We want to own slaves and we are going to secede for that reason Confederate apologist: This is actually a metaphor for taxation


LocomotiveMonarch

Uhhh, um, federal taxation, yeah! Federal taxation was a crucial part of the civil war (even though this is the first time I’m looking up the tax rate on southern states)

But it WAS about slavery! North tried to pay off Slave Owners according to “supply value” to release slaves, South said “fuck no, let me keep slaves”. Pretty simple
