That depends on whether you mean what if the Southern states did not secede or what if the Union chose not to wage war to bring them back. Michael Montagne Answer There would still be slavery, and blacks would never have ever had a chance in the "real" world, like Martin Luther King Jr. Actuall…y, slavery as an institution would have ended eventually, it simply becomes economically unprofitable after a while. It isn't to say that the Confederacy wouldn't have enacted harsh segregation laws in its stead similar to those of South Africa under apartheid, assuming real world history kept up its course, the two nations probably would have formed an alliance, a Confederacy seeking to undermine the Union might have even joined up with Germany and the Axis in World War II.

President Linclon was elected. the southern states dissagreed with what he wanted to to which was to get rid of slavery. so the south separated and called themselves Cofederate states of America. The north did not want the country to be torn apart. In April of 1861 the confederate army took over For…t Sumter in Charleston, South Carolina. President linclon had to choose between, getting attacked and most likely killed or shoot. he choose to fire. This started the Civil war. African Americans tryed to join the army, they were told to stay out of it for it was a white mans war. they were told that it was not to free slaves, it was to keep the nation together. But, after a year or so Linclon changed his mind. and in secret wrote the Emancipation Proclimation. Emancinate meaning Free, and Proclomation meaning an order to do something. The Emancination Proclomation freed all slaves that had left the union. Linclons advisers asked him to wait for a victory before telling everyone about his new plan. So, that it didn't "look" like they needed African Americans to help fight. He waited 3 months till he won a battle. In 1682 he warned the confederated that he would free their slaves if they didnt return to the union by Jan. 1 1863. THey ignored him so, on new years day, he put his Emancipation Prolclimation to work. The slaves were "free forever" Even youngsters were in the war. Depending on their age and strenghth. the ones that couldn't carry a rifle usually tended to the wounded,or buried the dead. Over 600,000 died on both sides. and over 1,100,000 injured. The south was devastated. On April 9th 1865 General Lee on the Confederate side surrendered at the Appatamox Courthouse. The war wasnt over WE ARE ALL FIGHTING HERE IN THIS LONELY WAR.

After the Civil War was over, all was still not well. Everything that had been destroyed by the war had to be rebuilt, including the government in the South. Laws were passed to give equal rights to blacks, but blacks continued to be treated differently. Read more about Reconstruction, th e time af…ter the Civil War, when the country began to recover from the fighting. After the Civil War, it took over 100 years for blacks to have the same equal rights as whites. Three amendments to the U.S. Constitution helped blacks have the same opportunities as whites and have the same right to vote. The Reconstruction Acts were also part of this fight. These made the South give blacks their political rights. ( Full Answer )

Much of the confederacy's dream of becoming independent was destroyed when Confederate General Robert E. Lee head of the Army of Northern Virginia and head of all confederate armies surrendered at Appomatox Court House in Virginia to General Grant head of the Army of the Potomic and commander of all Federal Forces.

i have no idea, while im looking and cant find any acts passed or any sort of meetings. All i find is the general slavery problem. While slavery was part of the Civil War, it did not cause the war. The North and the South were incredibly different. The North was more the suburb where everyone had… a start at education and loved the government. The South was the rural area that treasured the raw hard labor and didn't think the government always did what was right for the general population. In the North, because they didn't have to worry about how much manual labor was needed to make a substantial income, had a bit of an issue with slavery. Some radicals became abolitionists! These two different cultures naturally clashed a little and with voting the South, because of its lesser population, usually got the short end of the stick when it came right down to the needs. The South was mad and the North didn't understand and got mad. The South gave threats about secession. When Abraham Lincoln was elected as president, the South was very unhappy because they didn't want him, they wanted their own representative. They carried out their threat of secession. The Civil War started to keep the Union intact. Slavery was brought in to weaken the South and cause the European country's to steer clear because they were a little touchy on human slavery and wouldn't be involved. ( Full Answer )
What happened in the south was that it accounted for 30% of the nation's wealth

The US Civil War had many different starts to it. One of these leading factors dates back to 1801 when Thomas Jefferson signed a tariff on all imported goods to equal the price of the same product in America.This was known as the Embargo Act. Slavery was not a huge factor of the Civil War's outbreak…. Abolistionist were actually rare in the northern states. Abraham Lincoln supported slavery and only got rid of it in the south with the Emancipation Proclamation. That was no more than a tactical manuever. Also, the Civil War started because Lincoln was already going to invade the southern states to keep them secure, he knew they were getting angry with the government. Robert E. Lee said once that he did not understand a president who would raise and army to invade his own country. The south wished to be left alone. Also, southern states wanted to form some sort of government to increase independence. That's why Lincoln invaded. ( Full Answer )
The Fourteenth Amendment ended slavery in the U.S. Reconstruction temporarily redressed racial inequality in the South, but the South reverted to Jim Crow when it ended. The Transcontinental railroad opened up opportunities for farmers and new industries to push into the West (across the Mississippi…). Industry, in the North, continued to boom, and one of the most corrupt Congresses in history brought about an era of unparalleled prosperity, except for Native Americans fighting the U.S. Cavalry on the Great Plains and desert Southwest. Texas cattle barons drove cattle to the new rail heads in Missouri and Kansas for shipment to the slaughterhouses in Chicago, and sale in the eastern cities. All of these things occurred as a direct result of the Civil War. ( Full Answer )

The Parliamentarians won the war thanks to their New Model Army, run by General Fairfax and Oliver Cromwell. ( Full Answer )
Grant and Sherman were caught off-guard, not realising there were any Confederates in the area. The outstanding Southern General Sidney Johnston almost pushed the whole Union army into the Tennessee river, but called a halt for the night. By next morning, the Union troops had rallied, helped by rei…nforcements under Don Carlos Buell, and Johnston was killed. It was a significant Union victory, which ended Confederate hopes of commanding the Mississippi valley. ( Full Answer )
It was 'reconstructed' - in the popular phrase. A Republican government had to work with Southern Democrats, against a background of Northern 'Carpetbaggers' heading South to exploit low wages, and the Ku Klux Klan threatening the law-abiding.

The English civil war happened when King Charles the 1st angered Parliament by ignoring them. This was because he strongly believed in the divine right of kings to rule alone. He also raised taxes a lot and wasted the money on himself instead of the country and his wife Henrietta Maria was Catholic …and the country was supposed to be protestant. When he published a new Bible a lot of people thought it was too Catholic and that made them angry. There was probably a few other things as well but this is what I know. ( Full Answer )
You have to be more specific. Ancient Rome was loaded with civil wars. Which civil war do you mean?
Buildings were destroyed in the south after the civil war, so reconstruction happened. Although many people in the south were against it. . The original answer seems to misunderstand what "Reconstruction" refers to. In this context "Reconstruction" refers to the transformation of the Southern Unite…d States from 1863 to 1877, as directed by the Federal Government in Washington, D.C. with the reconstruction of state and society. President Lincoln and his Vice-President (soon to be President) Andrew Johnson took a moderate position designed to bring the South back to normal as soon as possible. The Radical Republicans of Lincoln's party sought to punish the former Confederate states for the war and enforce their view of how things should be done (in contrast to the wishes of the citizens of the Southern States), setting up a free labor economy, removing all former Confederates from power, and enfranchise the Freedmen. While some of these goals were laudable, the means of achieving them were heavy handed (to put it charitably) and rife with corruption. The corruption was a byproduct of the suppression of all opposition by force - whether it was those trying to hold onto power, those wanting to prevent enfranchising the Freedmen, or those objecting to the prevalent "carpetbagging" and general corruption of the government officials appointed by the Federal government.

Yes it did. This war defined America in so many ways. It was a terrible waste of lives and resources but the country came out of it stronger and better. The timing was perfect in that the powers of the day, France, UK, Russia stayed out it and let us settle our differences. Ken Burns, producer of th…e eight part PBS "Civil War" series, put it best. . "Before the Civil War we referred to ourselves as These United States. Afterward we called ourselves The United States". ( Full Answer )
If you are talking about the United States, most of the Civil War occurred south of the Mason Dixon Line (the southern border of Pennsylvania), the Ohio River, and the Missouri River. A major battle occurred in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. A few scattered battles occurred as far north as Vermont. An at…tempt was made to burn down New York City. The westernmost battle occurred in Arizona. As the Civil War continued, it mainly stayed in Virginia in the north east part of the South. It came down the Mississippi River. Then it started moving east from there and South from the north west of the Mississippi. Thus, the war ended coming at Virginia from two directions, North and South. Texas stood unconquered. The Confederate army there just packed up and went home. ( Full Answer )

Well I think because of oil comes from Sudan and I think that because I saw a picture of a Sudanese person holding up a sign that said "LOOSING OUR OIL IS A CRIME!" so yeah (I'm not positive)
Nothing much. Two national armies having to be recruited, equipped and trained from scratch. A false start when Northern politicians urged a march on Richmond. This battle demonstrated that the armies were nowhere near ready, and it would be another seven months before an effective campaign was la…unched. On the Naval side, two important projects started to take shape. The blockading of Southern ports would prove very effective in due course. And the Union decision to build a fleet of gunboats on the Tennessee and Cumberland rivers would also speed-up Grant's Western campaign. ( Full Answer )
because the north didnt like the slaves, and trhe south didnt like what they were doing so it ended up turning into one of the most bloodiest wars for the usa.

1857 was before the US Civil War, which started in Aprl 1861. The significant event in 1857 was the Supreme Court's decision in the case of the slave Dred Scott, denying him his freedom on the grounds that slavery was protected by the Constitution and that a black man should not be suing a white …man. This enraged the Abolitionists, and raised the temperature of the debate. ( Full Answer )

Everything was better because we no longer had slavery. Everyone was allowed to vote, and all the people that were born in the United States of America were known as being citizens. :)
Nothing much. It was a big anti-climax, as both sides realised they weren't ready for combat. The first pitched battle (Manassas/Bull Run) was provoked by the politicians, who thought it was going to be a short, bloodless war. It proved otherwise, and simply showed that there was lot of planning to… be done before serious operations could start. ( Full Answer )
You need to define the question more exactly. As stated, it could encompass all of US, or even world history.

Most definitely. I live in a small ton called White Mills, it is about 13 miles west of Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Yes, they made a movie, the same town. There is an old building downtown that still has the Civil War cannon ball still lodged in its exterior wall. There was a battle here towards the en…d of the war, it wasnt long, and the Union Army sat atop one of the hills, (now a cemetery) and bombarded the town with 2, count them, two cannon. Hence where the cannon ball came from, short battle. ( Full Answer )
