In my recollections there were at least 3 other movements for  secession in 
the nation's history prior to the CW.
 
During the War of 1812 New England wanted to secede because of  it's 
economic ties to Great Britain.
 
During the Nullifications troubles under A Jackson S.C. also  wanted to 
secede.
 
When the war broke out N.Y.C wanted to secede and declare  itself a neutral 
city for trade purposes.
 
All of these secession movements were based on  money.
 
S.C. didn't secede  in the 1830s because Charlton Heston  threatened to 
come down there himself at the head of an army and beat them  up.
 
Your  Most Obedient Servant,
Peter
