The Confederate War of Independence was an armed conflict fought between the United States (Union) and the Confederate States (Confederacy) between 1861 and 1864 over the independence of the former American south. After several southern slave states seceded from the U.S., the Confederate States of America was formed out of the individual republics of those states.
