the fight against slavery and other fights between the North and South caused the civil war to take place
The American Civil War (1861-1865), also known as the War Between the States and several other names , was a civil war in the United States of America . Eleven Southern slave states declared their secession from the U.S. and formed the Confederate States of America (the Confederacy).… Led by Jefferson Davis , they fought against the U.S. federal government (the " Union "), which was supported by all the free states and the five border slave states .. In the presidential election of 1860 , the Republican Party , led by Abraham Lincoln , had campaigned against the expansion of slavery beyond the states in which it already existed. The Republican victory in that election resulted in seven Southern states declaring their secession from the Union even before Lincoln took office on March 4, 1861. Both the outgoing and incoming U.S. administrations rejected secession, regarding it as rebellion .. Hostilities began on April 12, 1861, when Confederate forces attacked a U.S. military installation at Fort Sumter in South Carolina . Lincoln responded by calling for a volunteer army from each state, leading to declarations of secession by four more Southern slave states. Both sides raised armies as the Union assumed control of the border states early in the war and established a naval blockade . In September 1862, Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation made ending slavery in the South a war goal, and dissuaded the British from intervening. Confederate commander Robert E. Lee won battles in the east, but in 1863 his northward advance was turned back at Gettysburg and, in the west, the Union gained control of the Mississippi River at the Battle of Vicksburg , thereby splitting the Confederacy. Long-term Union advantages in men and material were realized in 1864 when Ulysses S. Grant fought battles of attrition against Lee as Union general William Sherman captured Atlanta , Georgia and marched to the sea . Confederate resistance collapsed after Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865.. The American Civil War was the deadliest war in American history , causing 620,000 soldier deaths and an undetermined number of civilian casualties, ending slavery in the United States, restoring the Union, and strengthening the role of the federal government . The social, political, economic and racial issues of the war decisively shaped the reconstruction era that lasted to 1877 , and continue into the 21st century. ( Full Answer )

Lincoln reckoned that the whole lot could have been captured, and criticised Gordon Meade for failing to pursue and destroy the Army of Northern Virginia. ( Full Answer )

Several of the most important battles of the Civil War, in the early years, occurred in northern Virginia. To name several, Manassas Junction - twice (also known as Bull Run), Chancelorsville, and Cold Harbor; all won by the Confererates. Each of these battles marked attempts by the Union to invade …the Confideracy. The results of these battles created severe morale problems for the Union, uncovered weaknesses in the Union Army command, and demonstrated that the war would be long and deadly. One very important battle occurred in Maryland near Sharpsburg or Antietem Creek. It was tactically a draw, but strategically a Union victory, because the Confederates were forced to retreat to Virginia. It was one of the deadlest battles of the war. The most important battle of the entire war occured in Pennsylvania at Gettysburg. It was won convincingly by the Union and was the deadlest battle of the war. It was also the turning point of the war. After this battle the Confederates never entered Union territory again. In eastern Virginia there were two significant campaigns both referred to as the Battle of the Wilderness; both won by the Confederates. These campaigns contained numerous battles and skirmishes, all fought in dense forest and swampy areas. They were Union attempts to sieze Richmond, the Confererate capital. Further south, the siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi was finally won after a year by the Union. Vicksburg's fall cut the Confereracy off from New Orleans and supplies brought up the Mississippi River. This was the beginning of the end for the Confederacy. One thing that was not a battle as such was the Union blockade of the Confederate port cities. This navel blockade was very effective and strangled the Confederacy's abilities to earn income from exports and import goods to support its military. The battle of the ironclads (the USS Monitor and the CSS Virginia - the former USS Merrimack) was an attempt by the Confederates to break the blockade. The battle for Georgia included the siege and capture of Atlanta and Sherman's march to the sea. Here the Union army distroyed Atlanta along with its industry and its very important transportation and distribution fuctions. Sherman then marched from Atlanta to Savannah, Georgia's major port, while destroying everything in a corridor about 90 miles wide. This action introduced the concept of "total war" to the world and gutted the Confederacy's ability to resupply its armies. There were many other battles and campaigns. These, I believe, were the key ones. ( Full Answer )

Paying a substitute. That was one of the provisions of the Union draft, and it was a very bad law. There was naturally a lot of grumbling in the ranks about well-off young men who could afford to slide out of doing their service. But the substitutes were mostly no use anyway. Why hadn't they respon…ded to the call-up in the first place? Obviously a lot of deserters, draft-dodgers or bounty-jumpers. The Confederates did not allow substitutes, and that is one reason that their morale was higher. ( Full Answer )
