Originally, it was just called the Rebellion, and then The War Between the States.
The official name of the conflict in the United States from 1861 to 1865 in the US Military and National Archive records is "The War of the Rebellion"

No need to "over-use" that "undeclared war..." term. If folks go by that term, people will begin to have troubles defining the American Civil War (aka US Civil War); for, much to the chagrin of Civil War buffs...the Civil War wasn't a declared war either. And by the way, the Civil War was officially called the "War of the Rebellion" (NOT the Civil War). One more note: there hasn't been a US declared war since WWII! So who won the Vietnam War? North Vietnam won the war!
