Southern text books for years have taught that the Civil War wasn't about slavery but about states' rights. They books don't mention that the states' right at issue was the "right" to hold slaves which was challenged by the federal government.

Southerners have been taught about the "War of Northern Aggression". Some text books refer to slaves as "workers" and "immigrants".

Others highlight the battlefield acumen of Confederate commanders alongside their Union counterparts. At least one suggests that abolition represented the first time the nation lived up to its founding ideals. (continued at link)
