Civil War

A civil war is a war between organized groups within the same nation state or republic, or, less commonly, between two countries created from a formerly-united nation state.

In America, "Civil War" is often used to refer to the American Civil War. In Britain, it usually refers to the English Civil War from 1642–1651. Other civil wars in modern times include the Irish Civil War, the Spanish Civil War, and the Syrian Civil War.
