I think the Civil war effected the future of America with a large impact. I think that if there was no Civil war then the United States would be separate from the confederate states and slavery may very well still exist in the Confederate state. I believe it was a good thing for the Civil war to occur because of the laws that were passed because of this war.How did the Civil war affect the future of America?

The surrender of the Confederacy was on April 9th 1865The final surrender was June 23, 1865There was no imprisonment for TreasonGeneral Robert E. Lee was the first to surrender in April of 1865The soon put a stop to slavery and reunited the Union and Confederacy
