The Civil War
1861 to 1865

Civil WarAn 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.
