The American Civil War lasted from 1861 to 1865. Eleven southern states formed the Confederate States of America. Those states wanted larger autonomy and wanted to separate from the rest of the Union. Other states didn’t agree with it of course. This is why this war is called the War Between the States. Another reason for this war was the abolition of slavery with which the South disagreed. Southern planters believed that it would not be possible to get white helpers for hard work in a hot climate.

The War Between the States cost many lives. Finally South was defeated. The central government was strengthened and the slavery was abolished. US citizens gained more civil liberties; the territory of the U.S. was expanded; the national economy also boosted gradually, including the South.

This war became a frequent theme for many books.  You may know the adventure novel “North Against South” by Jules Verne or the romantic historical novel “Gone With the Wind” by Margaret Mitchell.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

Why you cannot deliver swords or daggers to Switzerland?

Dear customers from Switzerland, we are very sorry that we cannot deliver swords, daggers, sabres, maces, combat axes, flails etc. to your country. We meet with bureaucratic obstacles at all products that either are or just look as a weapon again and again. We receive all consignments to Switzerland automatically back with an explanation "subject to the import permit." Our logistics partners told us the following: "both goods that are sold only to persons over 18 years and goods that merely look as weapons are subject to import permit. (For example: toy guns are sellable without restrictions in Switzerland, BUT are subject to import permit issued by the Swiss authorities!)". We have found only the following solutions so far: (1) The customer secures collection at our address in the Czech Republic himself (his logistic partner can handle this procedure better), (2) the customer gives us a delivery address in the EU. The disadvantage is that we have to charge the VAT tax in both cases.
