Who Caused The American Civil War of 1861

The biggest debate among historians has been the exact cause of the American Civil War in 1861. Whether it was slavery in the South or social progressives in the North, both fought to keep America together one way or another. We hope this video gives you some context for drawing your own conclusions.

Pieces of the Past was trademarked just for this purpose. Each card comes complete with an authentic, vintage relic. Whether it be a document of historical significance or a vintage newspaper that references our subjects, we leverage customer feedback to create a unique card collecting experience.


Look for 5 new hits this month including a randomly inserted Abraham Lincoln card with a handwritten letter relic from a Soldier that fought for Lincoln's Union cavalry. This 1864 piece was written a year before Lincoln was assassinated and can be yours if you subscribe to this month's Pieces Monthly box, this particular card will be randomly inserted. 

American Civil War 3 Card Set


We hope you enjoyed the February Monthly box, which depicted a 3 card American Revolutionary War scene with a 200 year old document relic. We really enjoy developing the 3 card scene which is why we're offering you the opportunity to build this month's Civil War scene. The civil war scene shares two documents, one being from a soldier who fought in the civil war and the other is a ledger of soldiers that fought for the Vermont 9th Infantry regiment.

Three card sets have been completed and sold at auction for $200, INCREDIBLE!!!
