    that there was far from unanimous support in the South.

    I remember in a class I took about the Civil War and Reconstruction, when our professor showed us a map breaking down, county by county, the areas of the south that supported secession.  Almost all of the counties that supported it were in the areas where cotton was grown, and thus there were a lot of slaves.  Conversely, almost all of the counties where this wasn't the case didn't support secession.
