About The Civil War
The American Civil War (1861–1865), one of the earliest true industrial wars, was a civil war in the United States of America. Led by Jefferson Davis, the “Confederacy” comprising of eleven southern slave states, declared their secession from the United States and fought for its independence from the United States. The U.S. federal government, supported by twenty mostly-Northern slavery- free states and by five slave states known as the border states, were referred to as the “Union”. After four years of bloody, devastating warfare (mostly within the Southern states), the Confederacy surrendered and slavery was outlawed everywhere in the nation. The restoration of the Union, and the Reconstruction Era that followed, dealt with issues that remained unresolved for generations.
