The South was wealthy; seeds, ground, produce of the ground. The Vatican used the North to create debt via mechanization … the south had to be brought into the debt fold ergo a war. same old Hittite strategy, with the Edomites…
I somewhat agree about your post that slavery did not cause the Civil War in USA. My conclusion has been similar, money was the cause of the war. Taxes are money the residents pay. War is profitable in every way and expensive. So much to learn about the Civil War. I only scratched the surface of 3 years of researching this on my own. Richmond, VA
There were no taxes, only tariffs paid on imported goods. In 1860 the majority of tariffs were collected in NY. Boston took in more than the top 3 southern ports combined. You do the math. Rebel VP Stephens himself said tariffs were irrelevant to secession (and also said African bondage was the ‘cornerstone of the confederacy’). During Secession Winter, there were 67 proposed Constitutional amendments. Within these amendments were roughly 350 articles, only a few of which did not involve slavery. The architects of secession also said they rebelled to expand and perpetuate slavery (see various declaration of secession documents from the rebelling states). The rebel constitution forbade laws infringing on slavery. Tariffs as the cause isn’t supported by contemporary evidence.
I have to say your write up on Civil war and taxes is a great read. I have shared that far and wide.
