To the average poor white man, and most were poor, they didn't care about slavery. It was tariffs and northern domination of the federal government that also led to the civil war.
Except that the North didn't dominate the government. Indeed, due to the 3/5ths counting of persons not taxed, the South was overrepresented.

State pride played a large part to, once they were at "war" with the Union, most men felt the natural desire to defend their homes.
All the more reason to curse the memory of the sick Confederate ruling class that stoked their war fever.
