The CSA (Confederate States of America) is one of the two main factions on WarfareCraft's American Civil War server. The CSA was formed in 1861 following Abraham Lincoln's election to the Presidential office in November. Lincoln had acquired less than 5% of the Southern vote, and yet still won the election. This led Southerners to conclude that because a president had been elected despite having hardly any Southern votes, that they were being unequally represented in Congress. This, along with many other events occurring over the past half-century led the Southern states of Tennessee, Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida, and Texas to secede from the Union of the United States of America and form The Confederate States of America. The Union considered this an illegal act, and began mobilizing an army to invade Virginia. Upon hearing of Lincoln's plans to invade the South, Confederate President Jefferson Davis authorized the attack on the Union fort in South Carolina; Fort Sumter, thus beginning the bloodiest war in American history!
