The Election of 1860 - Abraham Lincoln receives the most electoral votes and becomes the president of the U.S.
I'm so glad to finally be free from the Union
The Results of the Election were what caused the separation into what was going to be the Union and the Confederacy.
This will be called the CSA
Secession - When states like North Carolina and Texas and many more started to secede they formed their own group (CSA)
This is War!!!
The (CSA) Elected their own president Jefferson Davis.
All of these states formed the Confederate States of America (The Confederacy)
The Confederate Army Captured all Federal Institutions in the south. The fort guarding the most important city in the south was all that Remained in union hands. So the South attacked an started the Civil War.
