Before the Civil War, there were actually several differences between the southern and northern states ranging from demographics to income potential, production choices, sociopolitical philosophies, occupational opportunities, economic classes, and development. Though before the Civil War, both the northern and southern states are much involved in agriculture, the northern states advanced by being more urbanized and industrialized while the southern states still remain focused more on agriculture.

Anyone would assume that battle and war both have the same meaning, but if we think a little deeper, these two words have different meanings. Battle and war are no doubt related to conflict; thus, many people get often confused in using them in sentences. A battle is usually combatting between two or more armed forces while a war is between two countries, nations, or entities.

In easier terms, soldiers go and fight into the battlefield as their countries called for war. Winning and losing is inevitable in a battle; one may have won the battle, but it does not mean that the war will end. An example is Country A soldiers defeated the army of Country B in the battle, but Country B has not yet surrendered; therefore, the end of the war has not yet declared.

The term cold war refers to the strained relationship between two countries or two power blocks where neither rival participates directly at war with the other where each of the rivals tries to soften its opponent. Historically the term refers to an adversarial relationship existing between the United States and the USSR during the period, beginning of the end of WWII and the fall of the Soviet Union.

During this time, no direct war between the two took place. A proxy war is a conflict between two powerful nations where neither party directly attacks or acknowledges military hostility toward the other.
