These initial seven seceding states formed the Confederate States.   A review of Slavery Was Not the Cause of the War Between the States (Charleston Athenaeum Press, ) by Gene Kizer, Jr.. In all my growing up years I was taught that the War Between the States was fought over slavery. That’s what the “history” books, so called, told us and it is certainly what the “news media” has screamed about as the cause of the War for decades now.

    *Explains the issues that led to secession, including the Missouri Compromise, Dred Scott, John Brown's Raid, Lincoln's election, and more. *Chronicles the secession of each of the 11 Confederate states, including passages from their ordinances of secession and their declarations justifying their secession/5(2).   Missouri is certainly unique in that despite the large Unionist majority vote against secession in the convention vote and the large Union majority in militarily choosing sides, the governor seemed determined to have his way in regards to defying that Unionist majority.
