A lot of southerners signed up in support of their state. That's not why the Civil War was fought.
No, that is just your spin on it. Truth of the matter is that slavery was slowly dying out any way. It was not THE reason the war was fought. It was just the one that has always received the most publicity due to the nature of what it is.

History is written by the victors. Freeing slaves puts a polish on the victors' side that is hard to argue with. And tends to lend to the forgetting of other issues and aspects.
