The American Civil War
After a long-standing controversy over slavery, war broke out in April 1861, when Confederate forces attacked Fort Sumter in South Carolina, shortly after U.S. President Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated. The nationalists of the Union proclaimed loyalty to the U.S. Constitution. They faced secessionists of the Confederate States, who advocated for states' rights to expand slavery.

The war ended on 9th April 1865 with the victory of the northern Confederate States and, as a consequence, slavery was abolished on 18th December 1865.
