Southern states don't have an especially high concentration of military bases as compared to northern states. However, New England does have many fewer than average for the rest of the country.

There are a couple of reasons for that. New England is pretty densely populated, and military bases do need a lot of room for training and maneuvers. Land prices and the cost of living in general is higher in New England, so the government gets more base for its buck in the south and west. And the soldiers aren't all that well paid; living in a lower cost of living area helps them a lot. Navy bases need to be on the coastline, and New England coastline is especially expensive - even more so when compared to Texas and the Gulf Coast.

The upper mid-west have quite a few, especially Air Force bases.

Military bases need a large amount of land, and need to be situated away from towns and cities due to live-fire training. The northern states were far more populated than the south, and had fewer large spaces available. Tanks, artillery, and crew-served weapons require square miles for training, and such vacant space was unavailable in NJ-NY-CT-DE, etc. Additionally, the southern politicians pursued military bases as a way to bring business and investments to their poor states.

What did the southern state?

The southern states voted, in their individual state legislatures to be removed from the United States and to form a new country on their own. This happened just after the election of Abraham Lincoln. The southern states were afraid that after Lincoln's election the federal government would make many changes that would affect the business practices and economies of the southern states, the most important issue being slavery. It is my understanding that this was highly illegal: the only way that they could legally remove themselves from the U.S. would to have been done by legislation in the U.S. Congress in Washington D.C. After they believed that they had removed themselves form the U.S. they informed the government in Washington that they must remove U.S. Army and Navy bases and personnel from existing U.S. military bases located in their states. When the government refused the southern states began to attack these bases. The most famous of these attacks occoured at Fort Sumpter and this was the first military action of the Civil War. The Civil War was a war to preserve the union that the states had entered into legally and tried to break apart illegally. Towards the end of the war, Lincoln emancipated (freed) the slaves and this became an additional very significant part of the Civil War.
