A CAUSE of the CIVIL WARBy Dominick Tassone

The south believed that Lincoln was anti-slavery and in favor of Northern Interests.

The Civil War lasted from 1861-1865 and led to over 618,000 casualties. The causes of the war can be traced back to tensions that formed early in the nation's history. The election of Abraham Lincoln was a major cause that led to the war. Lincoln won the election with out receiving one electoral vote from any southern state and this triggered declarations of secession from The United States.
