csamiller, very few in the northern states would have called this a "war against human oppression." The vast majority of Federal soldiers would have told you that they were fighting to restore the union. They also would have told you that the Union was made up of citizens rather than states. I'm not saying they were right or wrong, just putting them into their proper context.
