Explore the deadliest war in American history!
No other war in the history of the US has sparked as much debate and conflict as the American Civil War. For more than 150 years, the story of the Civil War has been a source of contention, confusion, and even contempt in American life. Even today, the American public cannot agree on the causes of the Civil War, never mind its lessons or legacy.
More Americans died in the Civil War than in WWI, WWII, and Vietnam combined. The war not only put Americans against Americans, but family against family, neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend. The conflict between the Union and the Confederacy still runs deep in some parts of the US. Indeed, the fundamental questions of the Civil War - questions about racial (in)equality, the rights of citizenship, and the role of government - remain hot debates today. In many ways, the war that claimed more than 600,000 American lives a century and a half ago is still the biggest battle being waged on American soil.
