La Guerra de Secesión

A861wwardeclared_thumb
Durante las elecciones del 1861, los republicanos llevaron a la presidencia Abraham Lincoln por sus ideas liberales y antiesclavistas; en respuesta a las elecciones de Lincoln, el 4 de febrero de 1861,  siete Estados del Sur (Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Carolina del Sur y Texas) se proclamaron independientes en una Confederación bajo la presidencia de Jefferson Davis.
El 4 de marzo de 1861, en el discurso inaugural de su propio mandato, el nuevo presidente proclamó que la secesión de los Estados del Sur era contra la Constitución y de consecuencia, ilegal; Lincoln declaró además de no atacar a los Estados secestionistas, sino de usar la fuerza solamente para mantener las propiedades federales en sus confines.
La guerra empezó cuando el ejército confederado atacó Fort Sumter (12 de abril de 1891); la Confederación hubo inicialmente grandes victorias gracias a sus propia preparación y tradición militar, pero la superioridad industrial del Norte y la determinación de Lincoln subvinieron a las carencias militares de la Unión.
En Europa, gran parte de las cortes apoyaron la Confederación: Inglaterra –por ejemplo-apoyó las tropas confederadas en la esperanza de obtener lana y algodón a buen precio, através la cesión de ingentes cantitades de armas y ofreciendo sus propias escalas a las embarcaciones corsarias sudistas (CSS Alabama y CSS Shenandoah, entre las más celebres).
Después de alternas vicisitudes, los Unionistas conquistaron Vicksburg, consiguiendo el control del Mississippi y aislaron la Confederación de las propias líneas de provisión.
En el mismo tiempo las ofensivas de los Confederados (directas hacia Filadelfia, Baltimora, Washington y las ricas haciendas del Norte) fracasaron en Gettysburg. Las tropas unionistas llegaron en Georgia destruyendo los campos de algodón sudistas, último recurso para la supervivencia de la Confederación.
La última contraofensiva confederada (fin de 1864 – inicio de 1865) fracasó con la campaña de Franklin – Nashville, durante la cual el general unionista Thomas aniquiló el Armada Confederada del Tennesse de Hood (15 de deciembre) que a partir de aquel momento, acabó de ser una efectiva fuenza combatiente.
El 9 de abril de 1865, después de la batalla de Appomatox, la capitulación de la Armada de la Viginia Septentrional, conducida por el general confederado Robert E. Lee concluye formalmente la guerra.
El 19 de abril de 1865 John Wilkes Booth, un actor de la Virginia simpatizante sudista,  mató a Lincoln durante la rapresentación de la comedia “Our American Cousin”.
