-- The Civil War --

The Civil War OR ... The War Between the States OR ... The War of Secession OR ... The War of Northern Aggression

(1861-1865)

The US War Between the States was known by many names, depending on your locality and alliances. No other war in history is studied as much as this one. This war was a rift in the basic structures that formed this country, caused by the basic rights that were established when the Constitution was ratified.
