  1. The superiority of the white race as compared to the black race
  2. The white slaveholding master perceived as an aristocratic ideal
  3. Protection of the rights as sovereign states
  4. The system of slavery from an economic perspective

Although historians now agree that there were many causes for the American Civil War, one of these causes remains the desire of the Confederacy to defend the institution of slavery against what they perceived to be an attack by the Northern states. By electing Lincoln as President, the South believed, the North had asserted its power and its desire to end slavery (even though Lincoln never publicly expressed a desire to end slavery outright), and so they were forced to drastic action which led, eventually, to their total defeat, and no doubt accelerated the complete end of legal slavery. The reasons the South was forced to cling so self-destructively to the defense of slavery are complex and varied.
