'why men fight' and 'causes' tend to 2 separate topics.

Men, especailly young men, enlist for a variety of reasons with ideals and principles not generally at the head of list.

the 'Lost cause' is created by the surviving confederate leaders to re-think their reasons and hopes behind secession and the war.

the war did not work out quite as they intended.

to justify their actions, which destroyed the south, it's institutions and many men, they attempt a rewrite of history...
