Why did the North (supposedly anti-slavery) want to be reunited with 11 'slave' states?

Why was 'Union' valuable to the North, but not to the South?

Let's look at some reasons:

* With secession the South controlled roughly 75% of the coastline.

* The South controlled the outlet of the Mississippi River.

* The profits the North derived from trade with the South was cut off-

...several hundred millions per year to zero.
