The American Civil War Infographic was designed to be used by students studying the American Civil War for the AP United States History exam by Brianna Sullivan.
The American Civil War (1861 - 1865), often referred to as The War Between the States, was fought over the ceding of the Confederate States. 11 southern slave states declared their secession from the United States and formed the Confederate States of America ("the Confederacy"); the other 25 states supported the federal government ("the Union"). After four years of warfare, mostly within the South, the Confederacy surrendered and slavery was abolished everywhere in the nation.
