From the Paper:

"In 1860 when Abraham Lincoln won the American presidency, he promised to abolish slavery in the whole of the United States. Two years earlier, he addressed the people with a speech entitled House Divided - this was the speech that promised to end slavery in the United States. But people in the South saw Lincoln's promise as a threat to their way of life if they were to remain in the Union; slavery was a part of their heritage, and they felt that it was their right to keep. But not only that, slavery was big business."
