Plurality of Americans Don't Know Cause of Civil War

Slavery was the cause of the Civil War. Only 38% of Americans believe that the Civil War was mainly about slavery.

Wow.

This drives me crazy. I argue with kids in my class all the time that think it is OK to put confederate flag stickers on their 4x4s because it means they are a red neck. Nothing like a kid from northern California claiming confederate status.

I thought it was because Lincoln wouldn't provide his long form birth certificate. Was it really about slavery? Mmmm.
