Welcome to your home for all the information you need pertaining to the Civil War. I am an AP US History Student and Civil War enthusiast. Though this site may not be the most reputable, I believe you will find a wealth of information.

This site contains essays, a timeline, and pictures to help you better understand the United State's most costly war.




When the Southern states seceded from the Union, both sides believed that they would quickly claim victory. A war that was anticipated to last no longer than six months turned into a desperate struggle that pitted neighbor against neighbor, brother against brother, and brought the nation into some of its darkest moments. By the time the smoke had faded more Americans lay dead than all other US wars (before and after) combined.
