Having said all that, does it makes sense to you that the South seceded over the issue of slavery?

Lincoln was more pro- than anti-slavery. To say that he was neutral would be an understatement, as proven by his own words.

It was economic and Constitutional grounds on which the South based it's decision to seced.
I hate it when they say, "He gave his life for his country." Nobody gives their life for anything. We steal the lives of these kids. We take it away from them. They don't die for the honor and glory of their country. We kill them."-- Admiral Gene LaRocque
