    Reality is seldom as clear cut as people want. So they believe myths rather than history. Even though there may have been a great deal of personal nobility among Confederate soldiers and generals, overall I find the confederacy indefensible.

    And Lincoln was pretty clear that slavery was not the main reason HE was fighting the war.
