Civil War
Causes of the War
The immediate reason for the war was the decision of the southern states to leave the Union and create their own country when Abraham Lincoln, an Abolitionist, was elected President in 1860.
The Union was forced into the conflict when the Confederate States (South) fired on Fort Sumter (North),
Other causes were the rising popularity of the Abolitionist Movement (led by former slaves Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, author Harriet Beecher Stowe, and the radical John Brown) and the debate over states' rights to own slaves (property).

vs
It was harder to survive in the Confederate South because the men were gone and the women and children were left to farm and work.
Life went on as normally as possible.
There were lots of shortages in goods: medicine, and imports like shoes, sugar, flour, and coffee were scarce.
Cloth was also scarce. Wool clothes were donated to the soldiers as well as wool blankets, Woman had to make their own cloth and clothes (homespun).
Things got worse as the war progressed. Riots happened because of the price of bread and many poor people resented the wealthy who were able to afford things that were expensive due to rising prices.
Many farms and property were either taken or destroyed by passing federal troops, making it even more difficult for families to survive.
Some solders left the military when they found out that their families were starving
