In the Civil War, the Northern United States fought the Southern United States for control of the country. The Northern side fought as the Union and the conflict was precipitated mainly by president Lincoln's policies about slavery and how the South thought it really needed slaves to live so the southern states seceded to form the Confederate States of America which was struggling to gain legitimacy by foreign nations during the war so they could govern themselves. The Union won the war before the Confederacy could gain legitimacy from foreign powers and the North abolished slavery throughout the whole United States.

Electoral vote of the Northern United States in the 2004 election.

West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia, and Missouri, are border states (striped on the map) which have divided loyalties between North and South. Occasionally the loyalties vary greatly within the state, for example, people from northern Missouri consider themselves Northern, people from southern Missouri consider themselves Southern. Self-identification may be based on life style as well. Those living in urban areas of Maryland and Virginia (see Northern Virginia) usually think of themselves as part of the BosWash, an amalgam of Northeast cities and suburbs.
