NEW The Civil War

America's Civil War, was a cataclysmic event for a country less than 100 years old. The reasons for war are deep-seated, and the discussion that preceded it was often elegant and persuasive, but the war of words would eventually spin out of control and the shooting war would begin. As the South saws its power and influence begin to slip away, into the hands of the brash and upstart North, its way of life and its entire economy seemed to be at risk. Yet the risk was greater still; it threatened to tear a fragile Union apart that had been created from a diversity of states, in terms of both their history and their culture. Here the roots of the conflict are examined from the political situation before the war to the decision made to wage war on fellow citizens. The Civil War would prove to be the ultimate test for the soldiers who fought and for their country.

The Civil War was over by the spring of 1865, and all the Confederate armies had surrendered, but for the victors, the peace was marred by the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. The long, painful process of rebuilding a united nation free of slavery began. The 13th Amendment, ratified in December 1865, ended slavery in the United States.

The first African slaves were brought to Jamestown, Virginia in 1619 to work on plantations. However, it wasn't until the early 1830s that the modern abolition movement emerged in an effort to end slavery in a nation that viewed all men were created equally. The abolitionists condemned slavery on moral grounds while the slave owners wanted to perpetuate it. Over the following decades, the abolitionists strengthened their demands, fueling divisiveness, ultimately leading to Civil War.

The North and the South had evolved in very different ways both economically and politically. In particular, the South's agricultural economy revolved around the institution of slavery. When Abraham Lincoln was elected president in 1860, the victory was seen by the South as the North's attempt to impose its anti-slavery measures on it. This ultimately led to secession when Southern states started to cut their ties with the Union.
