The Civil War, in U.S. history, was a conflict that pitted the Northern states of the American Union against the Southern states.  The war raged for 4 years (1861-65) and was marked by some of the fiercest military campaigns of modern history. Large armies were involved in large movements, and entire populations were engaged in supporting the war efforts of both sides.
