I believe, for the South, it was an issue of States rights. The South fired the first shots at Fort Sumpter. Seceding from the union by Southern states did not take place at one time. They took place at different times, not all at once. I believe for the North, it was that Lincoln wanted to prserve the Union. I don't think Slavery was the dominant reason for it, but I beleve President Lincoln made it an issue of the war with The Gettysburg Address.

Uncle Toms Cabin, Lincolns Election, the Kansas Nebraska Act, Slavery, the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, the attack on Fort Sumter at Charleston, South Carolina. These are some of the short terms or reasons for the cause for the American Civil War.

The cause was the Southern troops did not like the outcome of the general election. They did not want President Abe Lincoln to be president. They wanted to continue owning slaves. Many states seceded including Mississippi, Virginia, Texas, and Florida. After they seceded they fired cannons at Fort Sumter.
