The first American Civil War spanned from 1861 to 1865, after which the Union was restored. Rhetorical or hyperbolic references to a Second American Civil War have been made on a number of occasions throughout the history of the United States.

In popular culture[edit]

  • Shattered Union, a 2005 PC game published by 2K Games. It depicts a civil war between six factions of the former United States and the European Union, following the destruction of Washington, D.C. in a nuclear attack.
  • Power Games (Operation Enduring Unity Series). A military fiction novel written by Richard Peters depicting a modern US Civil War.[2]
  • In one Family Guy episode, Brian and Stewie go back in time and prevents 9/11, but this causes a paradox to occur in 2004, in which George W. Bush lost the Presidential election because he never had the encouragement to not let another 9/11 happen. Shortly afterwords, nine southern states of the U.S. secedes under Bush's influence as the "Second Confederation" and he declares a new American civil war on the rest of the U.S.
  • In the PC games Hearts of Iron II and Darkest Hour: A Hearts of Iron Game, there is a mod named Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg, in which one component is that there is an event chain that involves the United States in a civil war with four or five revolutionary groups, of which two them are new form of governments; the South in the form of the far-right "American Union State" and the Rust Belt in the form of the far-left "Combined Syndicates of America" which want to destroy the government while California and the Pacific Northwest secede as the "Pacific States of America", Hawaii, and New England all secede over election results and other reasons as a result of the Central Powers winning World War 1.
