The first problem.

The Civil War or American Civil war was a conflict in the history of the United States of America, which took place between the year 1861 and 1865.

In that war, the problem was that eleven of all the Southern slave states declared their secession from the United States and we can found the Confederate States of America or "The Confederacy", as we prefer.

The Beginning.

In the presidential election, 1860, won the Republican Party.
That victory in that election resulted in seven Southern states declaring their secession from the Union.

Both of he out going administration of President Buchanan and Lincoln's incoming administration rejected the legality of secession, considering it rebellion.

The American civil war was won of the earliest true industrial wars in human history. It remains the deadliest war in American history, resulting in the deaths of 620.000 soldiers and an undetermined number of civilian.

Conflicting decrees

Both conflicting decrees were the forces of the conditions of the North (the Union) against newly formed Confederate States of America, integrated by eleven conditions of the South that proclaimed his independence.

Reasons of the Civil War.

Both the North and the South assumed that if the slavery could not expand, it would finish eliminated.

The fears of the south of losing the control of the federal government opposite to the forces antislave holders, and the fears of the north of which the slave holders were controlling the government, made the crisis at the beginning of the 50s of the 19th century.

The disagreements on the morality of enslaving a person, the advance of the democracy and the economic differences between the free work and the plantations slave holders led to the existing parties in this moment to being ruined.

Both the North and the South were influenced by Thomas Jefferson's ideas.

The first act of the Civil War.

The first act of war was the assault confederated to Fort Sumter's garrison on April 12, 1861.

The repression of the army on having recovered Fort Sumter, it did that the conditions there were joining Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee and North Carolina.

The civil war between the Confederate States of the South and the States of the North began, It would finish with the victory of the above mentioned in 1865.

Kind of WAR.

It was a war between states.
In the background, it was a fight between two types of economies, an industrial- (North) and agrarian other one slave holder (South), which were totally different.

The Southerners declared that they were not fighting only for the slavery. After everything, the majority of the confederate soldiers were too poor to possess slaves.

The South was commited to a war of independence that was supporting the relations between the North and the South.

Victory for the North, meant the end of the Confederacy and of slavery in the United States, and changes 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.

The slavery finished in the United States in the spring of 1865 when the confederate armies gave up themselves. All the slaves of the Federation were liberated by means of the Proclamation of Emancipation.
