The Civil War was an important war over the freedom of slaves in the U.S.. The Civil War is well known for being caused by the issue of slavery, but it is really a combination of different events and actions that caused tensions to rise throughout the country. The economic and political issues in the U.S., along with certain actions caused the Civil war, which is one of the United States’s worst wars. All in all, the Civil War was one of the most devastating wars for our country as a whole, and the process of rebuilding would take years and is no easy job.
The fighting of the American Civil War would last four long years at a cost of 620,000 lives. In the end the Northern states prevailed- our country remained united, the Federal government was changed forever, and slavery came to an end.
The American Civil War, also known as the State’s War, was a conflict that arose mostly from the issue of slavery, but deep down was due to economic differences between the North and the South. The South seceded from the North and created their own self-government due to their belief in the lack of state’s rights versus the federal government and what they saw as a weakness in the Articles of Confederation. While the Confederacy of the United States depended on slave labor for their economy in regards to plantation farming of cotton, tobacco and rice, the Union, whom represented the United States of America, was a booming manufacturing industry due to railroads and machinery that allowed them to easily surpass the output of the South’s production. The expansion of the country as a whole before the start of the war was also a significant reason for the clashing. With the Louisiana Purchase and the Mexican War, abolitionists argued vehemently on any new state being a free state similar to the territories in the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 and the pro-slavery states passed a bill in response for popular sovereignty. So while slavery was a significant issue, it became entwined with the argument of states’ rights and the power of the federal government. While the Civil War ended up being one of the bloodiest wars casualties wise, the United States of America actually came out a much stronger and unified country as a result.
The civil war was a start of a new era. Colored people were still treated unequally, but they were no longer forced to work on cotton or other crop farms. The civil war had a long lasting effect on our nation. The United States lost many lives fighting in this war, but in the end it ended slavery and the division between our country.
When a war occurs, it takes years for the society or societies involved to return to a more normal, calm state. In the case of the American Civil War, many aspects of the country were disrupted after the war ended in 1865. Relations were strained, land had been destroyed, families torn apart, and much more. The economy struggled, and many Southerners did not want to accept a loss. The death count for the American Civil War was also an amazing number, and made a large dent into families, businesses, and towns across the nation.
The Civil War was a major event in American history. The outcome of the war has made the United States of America the way it is today. We could have been a divided nation or slavery could have still been part of this country. There were many causes that led up to the beginning of the war and also many important and decisive battles.
The Civil War was the fundamental event in America's historical realization. The war fixed two necessary questions which left it unclear by the revolution. The war all started because of rigid differences between the freemen and the slave states over the power of the national government to ban slavery in the regions that had not became states yet. The American Civil War was the biggest and by far the most vicious battle in the Western world between the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 and the beginning of World War I in 1914. Northern victory was the war that preserved the United States as one nation and broken the foundation of slavery that had separated the country from its beginning (James McPherson, 2013).
The Civil War lasted four years between the North and South about slavery and the South separating itself from the United States. Many soldiers that fought were wounded, died, or had a serious illness. Soldiers from both the North and the South had fought in the same conditions doing the same things, but they were each fighting for a separate cause with different amount of resources.
The American Civil War started in 1861 and ended at1865. It was caused from very old sectional disparities and questions that were not completely resolved when the Constitution of the United States was approved in 1789. Abraham Lincoln is the sixteenth president of America; He was the president that solved the issue of slavery in the USA. The civil war causes and affects through politics, economics and social issues.
The Civil War was a huge piece of American History. Without this large blanket of events, the United States would not have developed to be the way it is today. The Civil War, which has also been called the first “modern war,” was an extensive, dirty one. The constant struggle of the North versus the South went on for a little over four years. This struggle lasted so long because each side had its own challenges to face, along with benefits of their own. The North, though it possessed various advantages in terms of their military, socially, economically, and politically, still had multiple disadvantages. The South went by the same idea, possessing their own benefits, but having some costs as well.
