Lincoln's election to the presidency in on an anti-slavery ticket had alienated several southern states prompting them to secede from the Union to form the Confederate States of America. More states joined them once combat began and four years of the bloodiest conflict witnessed on American soil ensued with fierce battles at Bull Run, Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg and Vicksburg amongst others.
