south started the war because of one over confident genrial pick a fight that he wasn't supposed to. the north thought the south was so weak that alot of people actually packed lunches and picniced at the battle field thinking it would be over that quick. due to the fact they had higher population (so more soldiers) plus they had most of the factories for manufacturing weapons. but what they didn't expect was the large number of slaves that would fight along side the plantation owners. even though you won't see that in movies or in "popular" history a large percentage of the confederate army was black. now before i get hate mail for this let me say im not tryin to piss anyone off. its just when i study history i dont listen to biast opinions i want to learn the truth which is all to often unpopular. for example if you do a real study of george washington you'll find he was not a very good genrial. even when he was in the british army his win - loss record was not very impressive. so if i pissed you off sorry i was just stating facts, my source is Major Long U.S. army and history major in collage and the best teacher i ever had.

Let me think....... American Civil War also let the development of interesting weapon. We use wooden ship and rifle but that all about to changee. We got improved Gatling Gun and end the use of Wooden ship Era. We start using Metal. I'm guessing that the end of the Wooden ship error is when a Ironclad was made. During the war there been many research in making improved weapon. Since they don't like each other there deadly weapon such as creating Trojan fire at New York (or a different city I forgot) which failed and a Submarine that explode a wooden ship....or something which did sink the ship but sunk and went missing.

My History Teacher said Abraham Lincoln is USA best president ever on what he did. Even during a War. We see peoples argued against government and president when war happen all the time. I don't know what he mean by dad but we will learn the Civil war later (US History).

Speaking of Abraham Lincoln, did anyone read the National Inquirer article on how Abraham Lincoln used to cross-dress? It was titled "Babe-raham Lincoln" I think.
Posted 9/15/08
kind of ironic,general jackson,(or maybe it was lee) of the south owned no slaves,while lincoln and the northern generals and governments did own slaves(mind you they freed them,but just like the brits,they did this to get more blacks to fight for them and join their side as many blacks did fight for the south and also the mass escape of slaves hurt the economy of a slave users society)

Who? South (Confederates) vs North (Union)

Why? Because the South seceded - they tried to make themselves separate from the rest of the united states, going so far as to call themselves the "Confederate States of America".

Support? North - supported by free states and 5 slaveholding border states. South - everyone else.

When? 1862-1865

How many? About 3 million fought - around 620,000 died.

Outcome? North pwned South (which was to be expected since the North had the South greatly outnumbered: as I recall the North had something like 2,200,000 soldiers and the South only had like 1,064,000) - they burned down/destroyed most of the South.

Repercussions? Millions of dollars needed to rebuild which took several years. Secession repudiated. Amendments 13-15. Lincoln assassinated.


The Negroes were freed from slavery. You must be a foreigner.


-_- I'm from Colorado and I can see you don't know much about the constitution.

The 13th Amendment abolished slavery.

So there are no more misunderstandings:
14th Amendment: Guaranteed rights for everyone regardless of race, specifically, African Americans/newly freed slaves.
15th Amendment: Made sure that people could vote no matter their race.

So, which country are you from?


Ok then you are White.
