What the Revolution Was

The Civil War was the southern states fighting with the northern states over slavery. The war lasted from 1861 to 1865. When Lincoln was elected president, the south seceded from the Union and formed the Confederate States of America. Southerners thought Lincoln would end slavery because he opposed expanding slavery into new territories.

Lasting Impacts

The lasting impacts of the Civil War were that slavery was banned by 3 amendments to the US Constitution. The 15th amendment was passed to give African-American men the right to vote. Segregation was instituted to continue to make African-Americans feel inferior.
