American Civil War

A861wwardeclared_thumb
In 1861, when Abraham Lincoln became president, 7 states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Texas) proclaimed the independency of a Confederation of states, under the presidency of Jefferson Davis.
The war between Confederation and Union begun when the Confederation army attacked Fort Sumter (12th of April 1861): at the beginning Confederation won (Bull Run, Manassas) but the industrial superiority of north states, and Lincoln determination, changed the situation.
In Europe, most of the states helped Confederation: in exchange of cotton and wool, England provided a large quantity of weapons and helped Confederation Navy (CSS Alabama e CSS Shenandoah the most famous ships).
After the battle of Shiloh and Antietam, Union Army conquered Vicksburg, gaining control of the Mississippi and isolating the Confederacy from their supply lines. 
In the meanwhile Confederation Army lost the battle of Gettysburg: Union troops failed to capture the Confederate troops retreating from the battlefield, but advanced toward Georgia, destroying cotton fields, latest resources for the survival of the Confederation.
The last Confederate battles (late 1864 - early 1865) failed with the campaign of Franklin - Nashville , during which the Union General Thomas crushed the Confederate Army of Tennessee Hood.
On April 9th, 1865, following the Battle of Appomattox, the surrender of Northern Virginia army, led by Confederate General Robert E. Lee, ended the war.
