Best Answer

The wars are not comparable. All had different causes, and were fought under different conditions.

However, the Confederates liked to compare themselves with the heroes of the American Revolution, fighting for self-government.

And the fighting at Petersburg in 1864-5 did resemble the trench warfare of World War 1.

How was the American Civil War different from previous wars America was in?

The civil war was different because in the civil war it was northern America fighting southern America. in other wars it was all of America fighting a different country. They were fighting because the South (or the Confederates) wanted to keep slavery in the US. The North ( or the union) was fighting to abolish slavery in the US. Of course, the North won.
