I'm a financial contributor to the Mises Institute and was a speaker at their 2007 Austrian Scholars Conference in Auburn. They provide a wealth of erudite anti-state publications and conferences, and serve as a shining beacon in the libertarian movement.
It's my understanding the War of Northern Aggression was not fought to end slavery. In fact, Abraham Lincoln in his first inaugural address vowed he would not interfere with slavery. Read his speech at http://showcase.netins.net/web/creative/lincoln/speeches/1inaug.htm. Lincoln feared secession, as should all tyrants worth their salt.
