context suggests "American Civil War", and this threw me off because every school I've ever been to just calls it "the civil war".

or, if you're a racist, the war of northern aggression

@BestGirlGrace might be someone outside the US, I've heard that some other countries copied our idea of having a civil war and naming it the civil war

@robotcarsley yeah, absolutely, it makes sense that you gotta clarify which civil war you're talking about. I'd just never seen that acronym before.

@BestGirlGrace no I mean the American civil war we call that, other civil wars we just call them guerre civile

@wxcafe I kinda like "the war of secession" better, now that you mention it. helps set it apart from all those other civil wars.
