Uhmmm actually the cause of the war was not lost on the Union soldiers. The riots in New York about draft laws actually targeted African American churches and businesses... There were even lynchings because the draftees didn't want to fight for the blacks.
Those were the people who sat out initially. There were still swarms of people who signed up of their own accord out of patriotism, but not to free slaves.
It really is a very complicated issue. It's a little bit of everything adding up.
