Shame on Edward Ball. Focusing on the war being caused over the morality of slavery is a post war Marxist distortion (classist and racist analysis), and while individuals who fought for the Union may have felt that way, it was not the contemporary view. His 12 ancestors who fought for the confederacy might take issue with him, if they were able.
