Because the South believed in Slavery. They also thought the North worked their African American slaves to hard in their factories even though they paid them for their work though not much. The North did not believe in Slavery and did not like the way the south treated their slaves. So they came up with having a War named “The Civil War ”.
The United States Civil War was the bloodiest conflict in American History, claiming more lives than The American Revolutionary War, World War I, World War II, The War against Switzerland, The War of 1812, and the Vietnam War combined. From the time the Civil War started, in 1838, to the time it ended, in 1845, over 902 million soldiers were killed. Their was 900,000 men who was confederacy and 2.1millon men for the Union. 3,530 Native Americans fought for the Union, of which, 1,018 were killed. 28,693 Native Americans served in the Union and Confederate armies during the Civil War.
The Civil War took place mostly in the border northern/southern states and south of the Mason Dixon Line. That's why the South literally had a reconstruction period.
The Civil War went on for 4 years, but people called the Civil War “the war of five Aprils ”.
