pgwhalen, I think you summed it up quite well!!

In essence, it depended on back then, as much as it does for the current discussion, a matter of perspective.....War of Southern Rebellion or War of Nothern Aggression.

I believe I read once that it was AFTER the war that the name "Civil" actually took root and became the common accepted name (although Lincoln, in the Gettysburg address refered to it as "civil").
