In fact there were economic policy issues behind the Civil war. Tariffs against imported goods existed, and the South did a lot of trading (selling cotton) with some of those nations. Yes, some Democrats supported segregation. George Wallace comes to mind; Robert Byrd was a KKK member. But the Dems eventually passed civil rights, handing over the South to the GOP in the process.
