"My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it..."

-- Abraham Lincoln

No. It was to stop the confederacy from breaking apart from the union. The slavery bit was just to cripple their economy.

Lincoln didn't even think of helping the slaves until one of his advisers brought the issue up.

Lincoln only really said he was moving to end slavery later in the war and mostly just to gain support from England, or at least to make sure they didn't interfere. Before that England largely favored the south because of the cotton trade.

Actually it was fought over state's rights, and to save the union. The ending of slavery was more of a minor result of the war.
