United States of America

  • S. H. Steinberg
Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


In 1863 the United States of America were temporarily divided by the Civil War between the Union states and the 11 Confederate states of the South. Two major and decisive military events of mid-1863, the battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania and the fall of Vieksburg on the Mississippi River, largely sealed the fate of the Confederate states. On 1 Jan. 1863 Abraham Lincoln, President of the Union, issued his emancipation proclamation, and on 19 Nov. he declared in his Gettysburg Address ‘that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth’.
