Is it possible that the Civil War was about more than just slavery?
By William Sullivan

In one of my favorite Simpsons episodes from my teenage years, the friendly, if perpetually price-gouging, Kwik-E-Mart clerk Apu Nahasapeemapetilon endures a line of questioning from an examiner in order to attain U.S. citizenship:
Examiner: Here’s your last question. What was the cause of the Civil War?
Apu: Actually, there were numerous causes.  Aside from the obvious schism between the abolitionists and the anti-abolitionists, there were economic factors, both domestic and inter…
Examiner: Wait, wait… just say slavery.
Apu: Slavery it is, sir!
The writers’ jab here is pretty simple.  Apu, though an immigrant (albeit, one with a PhD), knows more about America and its history than many of our own citizens.
