Here's an interesting excerpt from an article about reasons behind the War Between the States. Sound familiar? Just change "Republican" to "Democrat" or vice versa. "5. Republican willingness to protect terrorists. The John Brown terrorists who escaped to the North were incarcerated. The states with Republican governors refused to extradite them [for prosecution in Virginia] and let them go. The South looked upon this as a preview of what they could expect from a Republican president. When John Brown seized Harpers Ferry, Democratic President Buchanan sent in the Marines. The Southern leaders asked if they could expect the same from a Republican president? The answer was no." [source: https://www.abbevilleinstitute.org/blog/why-the-civil-war-wasnt-about-slavery/ ]
