States rights were the deciding factor and cause of the tension of the civil war, this is because the souths economy was booming at this time, and owning slaves was a right to them they believe own slaves was a right the same as owning a dog or cat. Also as another disagreement the north and south had tension for year before this about economic issues like the tariff act which hurt the economy of the south for the norths benifit. After all this trampling over the south economy i believe the south crack under the pressure of the north and there abuse of their economy , slavery was just the thing that made it filp out of control into the civil war.
