The South tried to revolt (tried a revolution) against the Federal Government, but failed.

The people of the North, viewing the South as a dissident population within the country, successfully fought them in a Civil War --  the folks in the North  called it the War of the Rebellion.

What did the Southern terms for the war imply about its nature?  The War Between the States?  The War of Northern Aggression?  etc.
