A civil war is normally an internal war where different factions of the same country are in conflict. On occasion other countries rally to one side or the other.

It would also depend on which civil war you are asking about as to which, if any, other countries were involved

There were many countries involved directly and indirectly with the American Civil War. Other countries to include England provided weapons to the North and the South. Ireland provided clothing to the Confederacy.

Immigrants from other countries came to America and either enlisted or were drafted by both Confederate and Union armies.

As pertaining to the United States, the two countries were The United States of America and the Confederate States of America. It can be argued that this was actually one country, even though the Confederates had their own national government, army and navy.

Another civil war here was the American Revolution, in which citizens of the British crown living in the American colonies fought the British to achieve independence.

In a broader sense, there have been many countries that have endured civil war, but most have been internal conflicts with rebels with no real central government or command chain to bind them together in their fight against another group or ruler.

One of the main aspects that makes the War Between the States unique among other internal struggles is that for four years there was actually two countries where there once was one. It was a decision made by the people of the southern states and not an arbitrary dividing line mandated by the UN or other foreign entity.

To be perfectly honest, no countries were involved in the Civil War although the Confederacy tried to enlist both England and France's aid. They did this because they knew that both England and France bought Southern cotton and other exports. They also knew that if they could convince on of them to join them, the United States would have to recognize the Confederacy's independance. Both England and France sent military observers to the Confederacy. An example of this is the Battle of Gettysburg, a British military observer was traveling with the Confederate army. His name was Colonel Arthur Freemantle of Queen Victoria's Coldstream Guards.

The US Civil War was basically the Union's successful attempt to end the rebellion of eleven Southern states that wanted to form their own country. The Union never declared war on the South and to end the rebellion took four years.

The US Civil War was basically the Union's successful attempt to end the rebellion of eleven Southern states that wanted to form their own country. The Union never declared war on the South and to end the rebellion took four years. For all practical purposes it's true that England built some warships for the South and a French bank loaned the South some money. The two main players however were mention in the opening lines, meaning the rebelling Confederacy and the Union ( United States).

If you mean the US civil war, it was not fought between two countries. It was fought between the northern and southern states of the US.
