History

The American Civil War was a civil war between the United States and several Southern states that seceded from the Union and called themselves the Confederate States of America. The conflict originated in America's issue on slavery, especially of the expansion of slavery into United States' territories, and it lasted from 12 April 1861 to 9 May 1865 when Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia.

The American Civil War was one of the earliest industrial wars and remains the deadliest in American history. Innovations included aerial observation by balloon, armor-clad warships, fully automatic Gatling guns, submarine warfare, and trench warfare.
