The US Civil War was over in 1865. The last Confederate warship was docked in England late December, 1865 and lowered its flag in surrender. Practically speaking, the war ended in April of 1865 when the Army of Northern Virginia, under General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General in Chief US Grant in Virginia. The Appomattox court house to be exact. Later, other Confederate armies would also surrender.
