This is also the single biggest reason why the Confederacy lost the war. An inability to command a SINGLE Confederate Army as opposed to multiple state militias. I could be wrong on the state but South Carolina had an overflow of artillery and uniforms. They refused to share with the rest of the Confederate Army as they wanted to look out for their own state's interests. But enough about this.
All of what you said was born mainly out of the slavery issue. South wanted to continue to do it as they felt it was within their states' right & their economy depended heavily on slave labor, The north said no, so i would say it was mainly about slavery, just not directly.
