What caused the Civil War?

My thoughts...

Some say the North was the reason and others say the South. But what really caused the Civil War? I think it was a country that couldn't get along. Each wanted their own way, and wouldn't sacrifice for the other. I think they could have settled their differences if everyone would have just listened to their heart about what was right.

Advantages in the Civil War

The northern states had the advantages of an advanced industry, advanced railroad system, and a strong navy. The southern advantages were large number of military leader, troops were experienced in outdoor living and they were also familiar with the environment of the South.
