I found an interesting quote that pertains to this subject.  In the book "The Confederate Ordeal", it states that when Confederate President Jefferson Davis was asked whether or not the War was being fought to perpetuate slavery, Davis supposedly replied, "This war is not about slavery.  It is about Independance."  Can anyone varify this?

Thanks, Casey
