What Is A Civil War?One may believe a civil war is an oxymoron. To most people a civil war is civil if two communities brought their different points to a big meeting and then came to a compromise. Even then one should have doubts of calling that a civil war.The civil war was the one and only war Americans had with themselves. In other wars America fought for their countries freedom or to assist other countries in need, the civil war was Americans in opposition to Americans, North against South. The civil war was an all American war, where each side had a motive, and a principle for why they fought in this war. Now, centuries later, we've come to the question, "can a civil war be civil?"In

At the end of the Civil War, it was expected that the newly freed blacks would have equal rights; however, we know from history that, both then and now, blacks have not received the same treatment as whites. Before the Civil War occurred slavery was in use, which treated Blacks as though they were property rather than human beings. Even after the Civil WarBlack codes and Jim Crowism were instituted which still denied Blacks of their civil rights. Although it appears as though the violation of Black's civil rights happened years ago, it still happens to this day. Prior to the civil war slavery was found everywhere in the south. Black worked on the plantations to help grow, cultivate

The Civil War was the fundamental event in America's historical realization. The war fixed two necessary questions which left it unclear by the revolution. The war all started because of rigid differences between the freemen and the slave states over the power of the national government to ban slavery in the regions that had not became states yet. The American Civil War was the biggest and by far the most vicious battle in the Western world between the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 and the beginning of World War I in 1914. Northern victory was the war that preserved the United States as one nation and broken the foundation of slavery that had separated the country from its beginning

In 1861 the United States began splitting apart. The South felt oppressed by the "Yankee tyrants". They claimed they were fighting for self-government, and felt it was necessary to secede from the Union. There was no doubt that secession would provoke civil war. However, the South lacked a high population, stable economy, an effective use of currency, an expansive railroad system, and a solid purpose for seceding to defeat the North. Although the South's succession from the Union was supposed to bring victory, the South never had a chance of winning the American Civil War. The American Civil War was not like any war that had ever occurred before. Half a nation fought against

The American Civil War is known as one of the harshest battles to have ever taken place. The war took place from 1861-1865. This war divided the nation into two sides. The north, which was also known as the union, was run by President Abraham Lincoln. However, the south, also known as the rebels were run by President Jefferson Davis. It was a result of the decades of sectional tension between the north and the south involving slavery and state rights. Also, the growth of nationalism and in the United States was replaced by sectionalism which led to the start of the civil war.
One of the major contributing factors to the start of the Civil War was slavery

Where Would I Like to Live After Civil War 1865?Abraham Lincoln is most always associated with the Civil War. But, he was not elected through a majority of the popular vote. In fact, with only forty percent of the popular vote, he wasn't even close to a majority. His Republican platform reached out to many groups, but left out the South. Many southerners thought he was an abolitionist, although he did favor monetary compensation and a Union. As a result of southern fears over Lincoln, he was not allowed on the ballot in ten southern states, and many states threatened to secede if he was elected. His election prompted the first state, South Carolina, to secede from the Union, and started the

During the American Civil War, which lasted from 1861-1865, over 620,000 accounted soldiers were killed. Known as the "the first modern war", historians generally agree that the reason for this was because this was a time of transition for the military. Armies and Navies were still using tactics where they would gather large forces of firepower to bear on the enemy. At the same time, weapons were being developed which were accurate and lethal well beyond any arms of the earlier conflicts. As a result of these two conditions many more casualties were sustained. Add to that the lack of medical knowledge of disease and infection and the numbers truly began to grow. This

During the Civil war, most Union Army soldiers were immigrants, and approximately one in ten were African-American. This was incredible for the African American race, as they became united with the Whites and fought for a common ground, being the abolishment of slavery against the Sout, or the Confederate Army. Many people will claim that the war could have been avoided, had people gone about things differently. They, though, are wrong. The Civil War was inevitable between the North an South, as their social beliefs on slavery were worlds apart, westward expansion was creating tension, and Spot's Resolution, Wilmot Proviso, and Election of 1860 made the war unavoidable.

Between the years of the Napoleonic era and the American Civil war, industrialized nations experienced an era of rapid technological growth and development. This period of prosperity gave root to a new era of military tactics which greatly differed from the previous methods used in the 1810’s by Napoleon and his European counterparts. The American Civil war provided a look into these new methods of warfare on the battlefield. A number of European nations took part in learning the new aspects of war by sending military observers into the battlefield behind Union and Confederate troops. To assess the overall benefit European nations received from these trips to America, the

What began on April 12,1861, was an event that would change America forever. The Civil War, or sometimes called, "war between the States" or "The war of rebellion" and "The war for southern independence" was the war that divided a nation into two and set the brothers of America against each other. Divided for many causes, some of which were because of the issues of not wanting and wanting slavery, not wanting and wanting a big government, the United States split into two different nations. The north was still the United States and also called The Union, and the South was now known as The Confederates, each individual state separated from the United States to become

If I were Abraham Lincoln during the US Civil War, there would few things if any that I would change. I would try to do anything to avoid a war between our own country. I would try to settle the territory disputes and the slavery disputes with an orderly fashion. But if none of that works and we tried our absolute best, then I would say go to war to end the conflicts. After the war the slavery issue of the Emancipation Proclamation did not work as well as they hoped. They had no place to go after they were free and no one wanted to help them or even live with them or near them.

The election of Lincoln, secession of the southern states and the Confederate States of America Constitution set the stage for the bloodiest and saddest war in American history. Before the Civil War even began the nation was divided into four very distinct regions; Northeast, Northwest, Upper south and the Southwest. With two fundamentally different labor systems, slavery in the south and wage labor in the North, the political, economic and social changes across the nation would show the views of the North and the South.

Some believe that the Civil War was fought simply over slavery. Unfortunately, there is no "simple" reason for the cause of one of America's bloodiest conflicts. Between the North and the South there were deep economic, social, and political differences. These differences and a series of complex events, including slavery, began long before the first shot was fired. The South, which was known as the Confederate States of America, seceded form the North, which was also known as the Union, for many different reasons. Four decades of great sectional conflict between the two had much to do with this eventual succession. Several factors can be attributed to the cause of the Civil War, but

American churches during the nineteenth century began to replace certain established doctrines of religious piety with the tenet of moralism.l Denominations throughout the nation experienced dynamic, internal social changes as ministers began to preach with less vigor in reverence to God and devotion to religion, and became more inclined to sermonize on virtuous conduct according to society's established mores. The decades between 1850 and 1870, encompassing the American Civil War and several catastrophic denominational schisms, are particularly indicative of this change from piety to moralism, and the events of these years created the catalytic atmosphere culminating in the era of church

Civil War Nursing
Over 5000 volunteer nurses’ north and south served in military hospitals during the Civil War. Nurses were of all sorts and came from all over. Women wanted to be involved in this national struggle in any way they could. They did not want to stay home and play their traditional domestic roles that social convention and minimal career opportunities had confined the majority of their sex to. Many women thought of nursing as an extension of their home duties, almost like taking care of “their boys.” They recall the Civil War as a time when their work as nurses made a difference. It gave them an opportunity to prove they had the ability and courage to help.

The war lasted four years, from 1861 to 1865, and was marked by some of the most intense military campaigns in modern history. There were tremendous changes in the U.S. politically, economically, technologically, and socially. The people from both the confederacy and the union paid a high price in the form of both money and human life. Because of the Civil War, the United States went through major political changes.

Usually when a country wins a war there is a feeling of triumph and a sense of nationalism flocks the country. The country that wins the war has a high feeling of morale defeating the other country and it makes a case of being a bigger power in the world. This was not the case during the Civil War in which America was fighting against America. This war would not pull America up as a major world power if either side won.

The sectarianism nature of contemporary conflicts has conceptualised the prevalence of religion as a coercive influencer in conflict and peace. The embryonic Syrian Civil War (2011 – present) reflects the inherent relationship between religious identity and ideals with conflict through an isolated Syrian protest exacerbating into a Shiite-Sunni sectarianism war. However, this exploration of the parallelisms between the sectarian paradigm and conflict marginalises the significance of religious mediation in peaceful resolutions. Thus, the religious overtones of the Syrian Civil War has perpetuated the conflict through intensifying rigidly isolated religious groups, while conversely, has the

The photos of soldiers with hard, forsaken faces truly show the stress of the war put on them. Thanks to the courageous photographers who risked their lives, we can truly witness the historic event and experience times long ago.

When you think upon the Civil War, there are probably many images that pop into your head. For example, you may see hundreds of Confederate soldiers lined up with their muskets at the ready, or you may be thinking about nurses crowded around bodies of wounded soldiers. Whatever it is that you see, it probably isn’t pretty. However, do we ever stop and wonder about what the soldiers must have looked like? It may surprise you that not all of the fighters in the Civil War were what we consider today as “full-grown men.” In fact, it’s been estimated that about 20% of everyone who participated in the bloodshed were boys younger than eighteen, and at least 100,000 Union

The American Civil War
In 1860, arguably the world's greatest nation was locked in Civil War. The
war divided the country between the North (Union) and South (Confederate).
The war lasted five years and by 1865 the Confederate forces were truly
beaten. Out of this horrendous war though, where some 600,000 men died grew
a greater sense of nationalism than is today, unrivalled around the world.
The American Civil War is interpreted differently by many historians but

was a unified national identity.

Music was a vital part of the war. The Civil War had also been referred to America's “great musical war.” There was a rank for musicians. They played at recruitment rallies and kept up the troops' morale. Their main job was to relay orders from higher ranking officers. The branches of the military determined which instrument made the calls. The drummer boys, fife players, buglers and the songs that they performed played a significant part in the war.
Drummer boys enlisted to serve in the infantry. These boys were usually eighteen years old, but younger boys sometimes faked their age to enlist. They learned to relay orders to help soldiers during battle by sounding

As Sun Tzu once stated, “ There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare,” which is seamlessly illustrated by the English Civil War. The English Civil War was sparked from the abundant reformist sentiment engrained in the everyday civilian, whose beliefs diverged from the current reining power. The roles of political heads characterizing the religious and state authorities were challenged on every point in hopes from the general public to preserve English tradition. These issues were also infused with background pressure from the monetary deficiencies, which was the result of an insufficient tax base. Thus, the varying opinions of political and religious roles

Slavery was such a big issue that it separated the Union into two parts. Eventually the regions separated into the North and the South!

One of the causes was the Missouri Compromise, which was when Maine and Missouri were joined into the Union, as one free state and the other as a slave state so it would balance out the slave and free state. The remaining territories would be divided into slave and free state. A second cause was the Dred Scott v. Sanford case, this case had a slave in Virginia who tried suing for

The American Civil War, also known as the State’s War, was a conflict that arose mostly from the issue of slavery, but deep down was due to economic differences between the North and the South. The South seceded from the North and created their own self-government due to their belief in the lack of state’s rights versus the federal government and what they saw as a weakness in the Articles of Confederation. While the Confederacy of the United States depended on slave labor for their economy in regards to plantation farming of cotton, tobacco and rice, the Union, whom represented the United States of America, was a booming manufacturing industry due to railroads and machinery that allowed

The Southern states were trying to preserve slavery, and an agricultural way of life while the Northern states were dedicated to a more modern way of life and to ending slavery.

The Founding Fathers of the United States had been unable to abolish slavery and compromised over it in writing the constitution. By the early 1800's, many Northerns had come to view slavery as wrong. Abolitionists in the north began a movement to end it.

The Civil war was a very large part of American history because it served to end slavery, and to reunite the Northern Union states with the seceded southern states. The Civil war was a much necessary part of history as most historians would agree because after such a long history of conflict between the Northern and Southern ideals and lifestyles, they were destined to clash, and the shock of violence helped to reconcile their intentions quickly. Without the Civil War, bloodshed may or may not have been spared, but it was inevitable that the tension between North and South would eventually peak and conflict would be soon to follow.

The English Civil War was a complicated, intellectual war between the two most powerful forces in England: Parliament and the King. Conflicts between the two powers began when King Charles I dissolved Parliament in 1625 because they would not give him the money he demanded to fund his war against Spain. Parliament, who was lead by John Pym, felt that the King was showing favouritism towards the Roman Catholics, especially since Charles had recently married the Roman Catholic French Princess. Although Charles recalled Parliament in 1626, he proceeded to dissolve the second Parliament mainly because it attempted to impeach him. John Pym, who had been prevented

The effects of the Civil War brought about changes in the United States. The country had to answer the question: To what level of moral and ethical conduct do we want Americans to be held? Loyalties were seriously evaluated. People had to decide if they held their loyalty to the country as a whole, their state, their families, or even to humanity as a whole. They had to decide if it was right to own another person, or if the slavery system was justified as a way to keep the Southern economy going. Through all this contemplation, people wrote about their thoughts and fears, and as a result, people abandoned romanticism and became realists. Many writings of the Civil
