The Confederacy was fighting to control their own economy (the North wanted to enact higher tariffs to protect nascent industry from foreign competition), to protect state sovereignty (and their right to nullify federal laws), and also their right to expand slavery within the United States and the western hemisphere (ex. Nicaragua and Cuba were major points of contention).
