The Civil War political cause is based on beyond the official stance, what was the real political reason for the Civil War. The Democrats, by then known as the Slave Party, believed that slavery was protected by the Constitution, and that northerners were determined to end slavery and destroy the system they had grown wealthy with. The Republicans were former Whigs, to whom the abolition of slavery was important enough for them to split from the Whigs to form a party that would have this issue as its main focus. Lincoln, a Republican, was much more ambivalent about the issue of slavery than many of his more radical brethren. His main concern was keeping the Union intact.
