"If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher." - Abraham Lincoln

The American Civil War, spanning from 1861 to 1865, marked the bloodiest conflict in American history. The new war was a complex one, wrapped around the issues of slavery, economy and state's rights. One-by-one, southern states would secede from the Union prompting the North to finally delcare war.
