ⓘ Nevada in the American Civil War

Nevadas entry into statehood in the United States on October 31, 1864, in the midst of the American Civil War, was expedited by Union sympathizers in order to ensure the states participation in the 1864 presidential election in support of President Abraham Lincoln. Thus Nevada became one of only two states admitted to the Union during the war and earned the nickname that appears on the Nevada state flag today: "Battle Born".

Because the population in the state was less than 40.000, Nevada was only able to muster 1.200 men to fight in the Union army, but the Confederation forces did not represent any serious threat of territorial takeover, and Nevada remains firmly in the Union struggle for the duration of the war. Largely isolated from the main theatres of conflict, Nevada, however, provides an important target for political and economic strategists before and after statehood. Its main contribution came from its growing mining industry is: at least $ 400 million in silver ore from the Comstock deposits was used to Finance the Federal war effort. In addition, the state conducted a series of military posts.
