I think, perhaps the CW's definition is neither Civil War nor revolution, DEPENDING upon perspective. From the Confederate perspective, it was a war of independance (similar to the American Revolution, which was not meant to change the government in England at all....only to break from the government in England)....From the Federal perspective (notice, I didn't say "Northern") it was a war to maintain a cohesive nation.....
