At the time of the American Civil War, Canada did not yet exist as a federated nation.

Captain America: Civil War Prelude is a 4-issue comic mini-series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is set before the events of Captain America: Civil War.

The Civil War still influences American culture. Many people today are interested in its history, and they are called Civil War ‘buffs’. They visit battle sites, collect items from Civil War times and have Civil War battle re-enactments. In fact, you can still find Confederate uniforms, weapons and money in antique shops. In 1936, Margaret Mitchel published a famous book called Gone with the Wind. It was set in the Civil War years. In 1939 it was made into a famous movie of the same name. Some of the scenes and phrases from the book and movie are still used in American English today.

The American Civil War (also known by other names) was a civil war in the United States from 1861 to 1865, fought between the northern United States (loyal to the Union) and the southern United States (that had seceded from the Union and formed the Confederacy). The civil war began primarily as a result of the long-standing controversy over the enslavement of black people.

American Civil War, four-year war (1861–65) fought between the United States and 11 Southern states that seceded to form the Confederate States of America. It arose out of disputes over slavery and states’ rights. The end of the Mexican-American War in 1848 and the roughly 500,000 square miles (. million square km) of new territory that the United States gained as a result of it added a new sense of urgency to the dispute. More and more Northerners, driven by a sense of morality or an interest in protecting free labour, came to believe, in the 1850s, that bondage needed to be eradicated.

The American Civil War (1861–65) was fought between the northern (Union) states and the southern (Confederate) states, which withdrew from the United States in 1860–61. The war left cities in ruins, shattered families and took the lives of an estimated 750,000 Americans. The war also involved those living in what is now Canada, including roughly 40,000 who joined the fight. The war played a significant role in how and when Canada became an independent country

In April 1861, troops of the new Confederate States of America opened fire on Union-occupied fort Sumter and launched a bloody four-year war that killed at least six hundred and twenty thousand men, including thousands of Canadians who fought in the War.

In accordance with Britain's foreign policy towards the War, Canada was officially neutral. This, however, did not prevent approximately fifty thousand Canadian-born soldiers from serving in both armies. Four Canadians attained the rank of brigadier-general and twenty-nine were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Throughout the War, Canadian public opinion was divided for various reasons, including religion, language, culture, economic class, and moral background. The Civil War was the culmination of the reciprocal, sometimes parallel, but often intertwining influence of both the United States and Canada on each other's historical, territorial, political, economic, and social development. Following the War - two new nations emerged.

PRELUDE TO WAR is the first in a series of books dealing with Canada and the American Civil War by Canadian author and historian Mark Vinet. It offers an in-depth study of the fiery issues that led to the War and dramatically unveils how both countries, as neighbors, dealt with the contentious issues of Sectionalism, Slavery, Slave Rebellions, Abolitionism, and the Underground Railroad.

Includes 26 Maps, Photographs, and Illustrations.

Mark Vinet has written a very important, highly readable book which bridges the events leading up to the Civil War with the development of the Canadian nation. Citing hundreds of sources, author Mark Vinet presents an enlightening step-by-step approach to a number of pre-Civil war related topics such as the history of slavery in North America--the only place racially motivated bondage ever thrived. For example, a law put in place by John Graves Simcoe, the Lt. Governor of Ontario in 1793 making slavery illegal in Ontario, prompted the British to outlaw slavery throughout the British Commonwealth a number of years later. There are many other little known but eye-opening stories in this work which reveal the importance of Canada and Canadians to Civil War era study. Vinet also places the underground railway-perhaps Canada's greatest achievement in helping to destroy slavery in the United States-in context as an international effort involving brave people who put their lives on the line for their belief in freedom for all.
