California stayed with the Union side; though there were some Californians who wanted to join the Confederacy instead. There were also significant numbers of people who wanted California to become an independent country.
Upper South Secession
The South decided to form their own type of government, their own type of money, everything. they decided to secede ( to withdraw voluntarily from a union) from the Union ( that is what the united states was called). There were many reasons for this move, but the main subject is slavery. The North wanted to stay free, but the south had their own things in mind. anyways, the south successfully broke away from the union. the Confederates started the war in Fort Sumter Charleston, South Carolina
All the border states were in two minds about secession, but narrowly voted to stay in the Union. Lincoln made special efforts to keep them onside. He allowed Kentucky to remain neutral for the first year. And in Maryland, he (illegally) jailed pro-Confederate leaders.
Maybe you should try reading your book for once or listening in class for once! Have fun with impromptus tomorrow!
It narrowly voted to stay loyal to the Union. When Braxton Bragg invaded Kentucky in 1862, he expected a rush of young volunteers to join the Confederates, but there were very few. He did actually manage to install a Confederate government, but when his army retreated from the state, it collapsed.

Those were known as the Border States.
Confederate. It was not one of the first states to secede, and many prominent Virginians like Robert E. Lee, hoped that it would stay in the Union.
In the time of the Civil War, they were known as Border States. They had also decided to stay loyal to the Union, and did not secede.
The South wanted to secede from the union, but the North wanted to stay as one country. The North wanted to abolish slavery but the South wanted to keep slavery.
Virginia. Before it seceded, Lee was hoping it would stay in the Union, and he could have accepted supreme command of the Union armies. But when it did secede, he reluctantly joined the Confederates. He had concluded that he was a Virginian first and an American second.
South Carolina had several reasonably valid arguments for why it should be able to secede. The best of these arguments was that the Constitution states that all powers not specifically assigned to the federal government remain with the states. The Constitution does not specifically state that the federal government has the right to remove states from the union, or to force states to stay in the union. Since the federal government wasn't given that power, then states should have the power to leave the union.
North Carolina did not rush to secede because they were going to stay neutral. They finally seceded when Abraham Lincoln called for troops from NC to join the army to recapture Sumter.
