Do you really think the US civil war brought the two sides together? Internally there are still great divisions in the US between North and South.
Immediately after the war in 1865, love and harmony wasn't the case. Many Confederates did not call themselves Americans and did not want anything to do with the Northern States.
If you travel a lot down in the Confederate States, you will still see divisions, although minor now what with internal migration and a shifted focus on external enemies.
