Costs of the War
During and after the Civil War the federal government impacted the lives of American citizens greatly. The war caused the federal government to gain more power, before the civil war the citizens were barely influenced by it. The government took more money from the people, taxed their private incomes and required everyone to accept paper currency.
During this period the federal government helped greatly by building railroads and passing acts such as the national bank act. The act made sure banking was safer and more efficient. The war helped the north but the south did not benefit from it.
The costs affected almost every american family. Hundreds of soldiers and confederates died. The union and confederate governments spent about $3.3 billion during the war combined.
