The American Civil War was a conflict fought in the United States on Earth during the mid-19th century between the northern, or Union, states and the former southern states, which had broken away and formed the Confederate States of America, mainly because of the southern belief in states rights and the northern desires for a strong central government. Because a "civil war" requires two opposing sides to fight for control of the seat of national power, the war was referred to as "The War for Southern Independence" or "The War of Northern Aggression" by many academics in the twentieth century. The war ended in a northern victory. Following the war the former Confederate states were eventually readmitted to the Union, and the war was eventually seen as one of the key events in bringing about an eventual end to slavery and oppression on Earth. (VOY episode: "The Q and the Grey")

The war began after the Confederacy attacked Fort Sumter, which was under the command of Major Robert Anderson. (DS9 novelization: The Way of the Warrior)

Ancestors of a number of prominent Starfleet officers fought in the Civil War. Commander Tracy Dane's ancestors fought in the civil war on the side of the Union army, and began a trend of military service in the Dane family that would continue for over 400 years. (TOS novel: The Captain's Daughter) A distant ancestor of Captain William Riker, Colonel Thaddius Riker, also fought in the Civil War for the Union. He was wounded during at the Battle of Pine Mountain in Georgia, and would've almost certainly died had another solider not saved him. Over 500 years later it was revealed that the solider who saved Riker's life was the member of the Q Continuum who became known as Quinn. (VOY episode: "Death Wish")

During the war, the Union Army utilized observation balloons that were tendered at around six hundred feet high. (TOS episode: "The Savage Curtain")

Jonathan Archer witnessed a scene from the American Civil War as the timeline realigned itself after Archer's crew repaired damage to the timeline in the Temporal Cold War. (ENT episode: "Storm Front")

When the Q fought their own Civil War, Q chose to represent the war by using an illusion of the American Civil War, in the hopes that the crew of the USS Voyager could comprehend the Continuum and the war they were fighting. (VOY episode: "The Q and the Grey")

In 2276, Leonard McCoy refered to this as the War Between the States and the Late Great Unpleasantness during his Right of Statement. (TOS novel: The Romulan Way)
