A war on American soil - between Americans, against Americans, and to decide the
fate of a nation unlike any other in the modern world... - The American Civil War -
The American Civil War was the most costly of American wars in
history. A savage war that split the country in half, the Civil War cost the United
States over 600,000 lives, and led to over 1,000,000 casualties. In many
instances the victors were the few left standing on the battlefield. Raging through the country, it affected everyone in the U.S. and even other countries. Abolishing slavery was accomplished at the highest price possible, the Civil War.
