Overview

For four years, the people of the United States fought against one another in a civil war that left 620,000 men dead. More Americans died during this bloody conflict than in all other American wars combined. The war was about America's future---whether the United States would continue to be divided "half slave and half free." In the decades prior to the outbreak of war, Northerners and Southerners had clashed over the expansion of slavery into the western territories, an extended conflict that ultimately had to be decided on the battlefield. The Civil War Era: 1851-1865 covers this tumultuous time, exploring the catalysts for the bloodiest conflict in America's history.
