The American Civil War was the bloodiest of wars that the nation of America has ever faced. It resulted in the deaths of more than 600000 Americans, which is the highest number of deaths in any war the United States has ever fought. The first and foremost repercussion of the American Civil War was the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, who became the first president of the United States to be assassinated.

He was killed by a southerner called John Wilkes Boothe, who murdered President Lincoln to take out his frustration and venom against the President for making the South lose the American Civil War. Another important repercussion that happened was the rejoining of the Confederate states of American back to the Union. The American Civil War also established the fact that the federal government had much more power than the state governments. Last but not the least, the American Civil War ended slavery, which was a major paradigm shift for all the African Americans in their quest for gaining equality.

Along with the previous answer, the repercussions of this war brought a backlash from those who didn't want slavery to end. Out of this came the KKK, the Jim Crow laws, as well as the ongoing racism with which we are contending.
