The Confederate States of America (Confederacy) was a government established by the Southern states of the United States after their secession from the Union. The Union (a union of states) prior to the Civil War referred to the entire United States. The Confederacy was formed by 11 southern states of the United States of America between 1861 and 1865. South Carolina was the first Southern state to secede on Dec. 20, 1860 after the election of the Republican President Abraham Lincoln, the president of the Union. This was then shortly followed by six more states that came out of the Union. These states were; Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas. After the attack on Fort Sumter in April 1861, four other southern states joined the Confederacy - Arkansas, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. The president of Confederacy was Jefferson Davis.

The table below is a summary of the 11 southern states of the Confederacy showing the dates when they seceded and were readmitted.
