Despite the meeting of those important men, insurrectionists began hostile behavior. By the end of 1861, the fighting had increased to the point that it was called The War of the Rebellion.

The American Civil War was fought in the United States from 1861 until 1865 between the United States – forces coming mostly from the 23 northern states of the Union – and the newly-formed Confederate States of America, which consisted of 11 southern states that had declared their secession. ...
The later stage in the discussion of peace terms came in the midst of the tremendous reverses from which the German armies were suffering in September and October, 1918, and after the defeat of the Turks in Palestine and Syria and the surrender of Bulgaria to the Allies.
In the PeaceConference, the tension between Italy and the new Jugoslav State was so extreme as to lead to the fear of war at any moment on account of Italy's occupation of Slav territory which she considered should belong to her.
Her claims at the PeaceConference were: Dobrudja, which she ceded to Bulgaria in 1917; Bessarabia, which she was obliged to cede to Russia after the Russo-Turkish war; and those parts of Transylvania, Bukovina and the Banat inhabited by people of her own race which belonged to Austria-Hungary.
