Yes, one of my sources where I did not contribute. It is mine only in that I gave the link to what I thought was a more complete discussion by more learned people than I on the subject.

Ft Sumter, Ft Moultrie, Ship Island, Fortress Monroe, Norfolk Shipyards, Pensacola, three forts south of New Orleans etc, the lions share of the US Army on the frontier... mostly Texas. I don't see the liomns share of the money going north. Don't buy it. SC paid $500,000 one year in tariffs, ok how much did NY pay in that same year?

$2 a head just doesn't quite seem worth going to war for to me.
Sorry it just looks like smoke and mirrors to me.
