Now lets don't intertwine the war with the secession. They are two seperate events in my mind... but for the states to just walk out...
I'll be very interested to read your take on how the two can be unmeshed.

It COULD have ended peacefully!
Not if the federal government was willing to use force against states. This double-crosses the original bonds of union, and creates a prison empire. The states never intended this when they joined the Union.
