I finished my Cause of the American Civil War essay, or at least I finished it enough that I'm willing to inflict it on an unsuspecting public.
I will warn you now that the essay is fairly "mainstream". That is, I don't think tariffs were the cause of the war! I'm heavily influenced by James McPherson and others of his ilk. As such, it will rub some folks the wrong way. Actually, in part 4 I give a URL to a Columbia University site that describes the alternate theories.
The essay is found at http://www.hyperbear.com/acw/essays/acw-essays-cause.html.

Now that this essay is over, I can turn my attention back to my Gettysburg campaign essay...
