The battle was going on in Congress and the court system long before war broke out, and was very much a states' rights vs. federal rights issue. Slavery was actually on a decline prior to the start of the Civil War, although slavery had a definitive part as one of the causes.

I think the historical discussion is far more interesting than the movie in this thread.

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
