THE CIVIL WAR 1861-1865 The U.S. was divided over the issue of slavery. The North wanted to abolish slavery. This means they did not want people to be slaves. There was a secret way many Northern people used to help slaves escape. It was called the Underground Railroad. The South had many plantations and they wanted slaves to work on their plantations. Abraham Lincoln became president right before the war. He did not believe in slavery. In 1861, the Civil War began between the Northern states, called the Union, and the Southern states, called the Confederacy. The map below shows how the states were divided.
