The American Civil War (April 12, 1861 – May 9, 1865, also known by other names) was a civil war in the United States fought between northern and Pacific states ("the Union" or "the North") and southern states that voted to secede and form the Confederate States of America ("the Confederacy" or "the South"). The debate over slavery intensified in the 1850s. Actions such as the Fugitive Slave Act and Dred v Sanford decision only furthered the divide between northern abolitionists and southern slave interests. Eventually these divisions over slavery would boil over into war. On November 6, 1860 former U.S. Congressman Abraham Lincoln was elected president.
