An American internal conflict between
the northern states (Union Forces) and the southern states
(Confederate Forces) over issues such as slavery, states rights,
secession, economic domination and cultural
differences. From the firing on Fort Sumter
to the surrender of Lee at Appomatics the
war was costly in lives, property and
economic development, since it envolved
Americans fighting and killing Americans on
United States soil. Even today many issues
and problems in the 21st America can trace
their foundations to this war.
