One reason was because Texas Whats a country with slaves, and the northern states didn't like that or approve of that. Also, President Lincoln started to get rid of some of the states, and once they got rid of certain states, the south started to secede to form their own country. THANKS :D

The biggest issue that divided the south from the north was the issue of slavery. When Lincoln was elected president in 1860, the south felt that the federal government would abolish slavery, which was important to their way of life. So they seceded and formed the Confederate States of America. --A<3

If you study enough sources and ask for enough opinions, you might understand the issue. Most wars are fought over economic issues. Both the North and the South had farming and manufacturing. The farming in the South was mainly cotton and tobacco and much of the work depended on slaves. The manufacturing was small and mainly for local consumption. Most of the crops raised in the South were exported and most of their finished products were imported from Europe. The North produced far more of value from its farms. Its factories were far more productive. Much of its farm production was consumed by the new factory workers, and other workers. While the North sold a lot of its farm produce to Europe and China, it was nowhere as near dependent on exports as the South. The two regions had a different economic outlook. Slavery was not the reason for the war; economics was. Still, slavery was an important part of the South's economic system. It was a major contributing factor. The tariff was another part. The issues piled up and the Civil War broke out.

When Texas petitioned to join the Union in 1836, the United States declined the request. At the time there were an equal number of slave states and free states represented in the U.S. Senate. Neither side wanted the other to have the majority of seats in the Senate. Since Texans owned slaves, Texas wanted to be admitted as a slave state. At the time, there wasn't a territory in the north ready to petition to become a free state to maintain the balance of power. Texas was eventually admitted in 1845.

because they were racist and wanted to keep their slaves. And the union wouldn't have it so they left.

The confederates wanted to continue to allow slavery but the union wanted to abolish it.
