Why did they have the fight of the civil war of America?

              Why did they have the fight of the civil war? That answer takes a little explanation. You see in April 17, 1861 the war began while the union soldiers were at fort Summter in South Carolina, the Confederates bombed the Union soldiers and so the war began. President Lincoln didn't want a battle but it had to happen. This was the first battle of the American civil war. Civil War started because of difference of thought between the free and slave states over the power of the national government to prohibit slavery in the territories that had not yet become states .                                                                                                                   The civil war may have ended in 1865 but it was still the bloodiest war in American history. That is very early to end a war, and yet over 620,000 people died in the battle of the civil war. It was a severe war with tons of blood shed and  even more people were dead then hurt in this war.                                                                                                           Now you know why they had the civil war of America.
