You've probably heard it called The Civil War, or the American Civil War. Well, I'm here to correct you. The English Language Definition of "Civil War" is as follows: A war between citizens of the same country. Even historians who take the viewpoint of the Confederacy never being a legitimate country have to admit people living at the time did, to an extent, looking at the evidence. My biggest piece? Look at Belle Boyd's entry.

The stories recounted here were figures who lived (and possibly died) during the war years; 1861 through 1865. They fought on either side of the war, and their stories are just as varied as the rest of American history in general. So, here they are.
