<<I think that you ar saying that the root cause of the war was not slavery?

Lincoln had said he would not extend slavery into the territories. that
caused seccession.>>

You are right.  I am saying the root cause of the war was not slavery.  The
root cause of secession was slavery.  The root cause of the war was a desire
to preserve the Union.

That is exactly what you said in your comment above, but you somehow
interpret it differently.

The source for my interpretation is President Abraham Lincoln.
