The American Civil War was a civil war in the United States fought from 1861 to 1865. The Union faced secessionists in eleven Southern states grouped together as the Confederate States of America . The Union won the war, which remains the bloodiest in U.S. history .

Among the 34 U.S. states in January 1861, seven Southern slave states individually declared their secession from the U.S. and formed the Confederate States of America. War broke out in April 1861 when Confederates attacked the U.S. fortress Fort Sumter . The Confederacy grew to include eleven states; it claimed two more states and the western territory of Arizona. The Confederacy was never diplomatically recognized by any foreign country. The states that remained loyal including border states where slavery was legal , were known as the Union or the North . The war ended with the surrender of all the Confederate armies and the collapse of the Confederate government in the spring of 1865.

The war had its origin in the factious issue of slavery , especially the extension of slavery into the western territories. Four years of intense combat left 620,000 to 750,000 soldiers dead, a higher number than the number of American military deaths in World War I and World War II combined, and much of the South's infrastructure was destroyed. The Confederacy collapsed and slavery was abolished in the entire country. The Reconstruction Era (1863–1877) overlapped and followed the war, with its fitful process of restoring national unity, strengthening the national government, and granting civil rights to the freed slaves.

In the 1860 presidential election , Republicans , led by Abraham Lincoln , supported banning slavery in all the U.S. territories , something which the Southern states viewed as a violation of their constitutional rights and as being part of a plan to eventually abolish slavery. The three pro-Union candidates together received an overwhelming 82% majority of the votes cast nationally: Republican Lincoln's votes centered in the north, Democrat Douglas' votes were distributed nationally and Constitutional Unionist Bell's votes centered in the border states. The Republican Party, dominant in the North, secured a plurality of the popular votes and a majority of the electoral votes nationally, so Lincoln was constitutionally elected the first Republican president.

Nombre que reciben los planes y programas políticos que inspiraron el expansionismo de los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica, tras la incorporación de importantes territorios que habían pertenecido al imperio español y en su dialéctica con las realidades imperiales entonces actuantes –Gran Bretaña, Rusia, Francia, &c.–, sintetizados por el presidente Santiago Monroe en su intervención del 2 de diciembre de 1823 ante el Congreso norteamericano, y que se pueden resumir en tres puntos: no a cualquier futura colonización europea en el Nuevo Mundo, abstención de los Estados Unidos en los asuntos políticos de Europa y no a la intervención de Europa en los gobiernos del hemisferio americano:

Tomás Jefferson, el que fuera tercer presidente de los Estados Unidos (de 1801 a 1809), amigo desde hacía décadas del entonces presidente, Santiago Monroe, le dirigió con fecha 24 de octubre de 1823 una carta que traducida dice:

Juan Quincy Adams, hijo del segundo presidente norteamericano (Juan Adams, 1797-1801), Secretario de Estado durante la presidencia de Monroe, a quien sucedería como sexto presidente, ha dejado el siguiente relato de la reunión del Gabinete el 7 de noviembre de 1823:

Pasando el tiempo la doctrina de Monroe, convertida en ortograma político de los Estados Unidos ante el exterior, popularizada en la sintética fórmula «América para los americanos», hubo necesariamente de transformarse y adaptarse a las nuevas realidades políticas e históricas. El gran historiador mexicano Carlos Pereyra, en El mito de Monroe, asegura que no existe una doctrina de Monroe, pues por lo menos existen tres «doctrinas de Monroe» que él diferenciaba (en 1916).

A partir de 1869, se le asoció también otro punto, contenido en la correspondencia diplomática previa: los Estados Unidos se oponen a la transferencia de colonias de una potencia europea a otra.

En su mensaje al Congreso del 6 de diciembre de 1904, el presidente Teodoro Roosevelt proclamó el que se conoce como «corolario Roosevelt», que es más bien una enmienda a la doctrina, determinada por la crisis de pagos de deuda a bancos europeos por parte de algunas naciones americanas y los intentos de utilizar la fuerza por parte de potencias europeas para obtener el pago: los Estados Unidos podían intervenir en las naciones del hemisferio, para controlar ese «mal crónico», ejerciendo de «policía internacional», la conocida comúnmente como política del «big stick»:
