The Civil War was a turning point in the history of the United States. Before the Civil War, the country was divided in its attitudes, exemplified by saying "the United States are;" after the war, people said, "the United States is," showing a unity that had not previously existed.
The two sides who fought in the Civil War were the Confederacy, which were the 11 Southern United States that seceded from the Union and the United States which were the rest of the states in the Union.
The union, the confederacy, and the border states. Two years after the Civil War the United States purchased which territory from Russia? Alaska was also brought into the U.S. shortly after the civil war from Russia. (e2020)
