Even before the war there was a lot of tension between the North and the South because the South wanted to leave the U.S. because Abraham Lincoln was elected president and Lincoln did not agree with slavery and the South were afraid that Lincoln would abolish slavery and that it would ruin their way of life because they needed the slaves for their plantations.
