Added DiffLines:

->''It should always be remembered that America did not "go to war" in 1860. America was attacked in 1860 by a formidable rebel faction seeking to protect the expansion of slavery. That faction did not simply want slavery to continue in America; [[VisionaryVillain they dreamed of a tropical empire]] of slavery encompassing Cuba, Nicaragua, and perhaps the whole of South America. This faction was not only explicitly pro-slavery but [[DemocracyIsBad explicitly anti-democratic]]. The newly declared Confederacy attacked America not because it was being persecuted, [[SoreLoser but because it was unable to win a democratic election]].''
