For those discounting slavery and its hold on the Confederacy, look into Cleburne's plan to free and arm the slaves and the fact it was hushed up as blasphemy. What correspondence there is, roundly criticizes the idea. Cleburne's career was ruined even though he was among the most promising officers in the Confederacy.

The south preferred defeat to ending slavery-- because the Confederacy and slavery were so intertwined and connected.
