The Civil War was the most violent and destructive war in American history. With a war of this magnitude came life altering changes to the political and economic scene in the North, South, and West. In the immediate years after the Civil War, American politics made a shift of complete power to the North which gave them the ability to pass laws and amendments with ease, economically; the South struggled to get back on track after the decimation of their plantations and cities by union soldiers, the West was now more appealing to southerners and freedmen, and a new industrial age started to blossom in the decades after the war.
