Tell all of your stupid friends/acquaintances that there's proof the Civil War was about slavery

Not really debatable, tell them to STFU and GTFO out if they say otherwise.  There are facts out there.  This is one of them:

"It is not safe ... to trust $800 million worth of negroes in the hands of a power which says that we do not own the property. ... So we must get out ..." — The Daily Constitutionalist, Augusta, Ga., Dec. 1, 1860

"(Northerners) have denounced as sinful the institution of slavery. ... We, therefore, the people of South Carolina ... have solemnly declared that the Union heretofore existing between this State and other States of North America dissolved." - from "Declaration of the Causes of Secession"

"As long as slavery is looked upon by the North with abhorrence ... there can be no satisfactory political union between the two sections." - New Orleans Bee, Dec. 14, 1860

"Our new government is founded upon ... the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race is his natural and moral condition." - Alexander Stephens, vice president of the Confederacy, March 21, 1861
