A short answer . . . . .   The standard Marxist appreciation of the
conflict was that it was a bourgeois revolution.   If the Civil War
was not a revolution simply because the bourgeoisie emerged to rule
the way it wanted, then the entire concept of a bourgeois revolution
actually has no meaning any more.

There should be no American exceptionalism in any of this.  The
English Revolution, the French Revolution led to similar results
through process that were every bit as tainted in motives and
outcomes.
