CLASH OF BELIEFS The Civil War is one of the key events that formed America’s national character. This unit examines the causes and effects of the conflict and change of the American Civil War. It also provides a rich field for examining the role of individuals, groups and institutions in shaping history. It will also show how production, distribution, and consumption help the economy to thrive as industry supports the war. The unit concludes with a focus on the beliefs and ideals of political reconstruction of the South and the struggles of newly freed African-Americans.

AMERICAN CIVIL WAR 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. other namescivil warUnited States of America Southernslave states secession Confederate States of AmericaJefferson DavisUnionfree statesborder slave statesother namescivil warUnited States of America Southernslave states secession Confederate States of AmericaJefferson DavisUnionfree statesborder 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, Both the outgoing and incoming U.S. administrations rejected secession, regarding it as rebellion. presidential election of 1860 Republican PartyAbraham Lincolnsecessionrebellionpresidential election of 1860 Republican PartyAbraham Lincolnsecessionrebellion
