Some today call it the War of Northern Aggression. However, this term appears to be a modern construct, first appearing widely in print in the mid-1950s, often in conjunction with Southern opposition to federal involvement in desegregation during the Civil Rights Movement. Although it is popular today among some to express their view that the North was the instigator and aggressor in the war, the phrase "War of Northern Aggression," as a proper name for the conflict itself, does not appear in 19th century Southern newspapers or other publications.
