Event Description

The Trent Affair

Nov 8 1861

In the middle of the Civil War, two Confederate emissaries to Great Britain were detained.  Claiming that the Union Navy was interfering with "their diplomatic mission", both the Confederacy and Great Britain denounced the imprisonment of the two.

This could have led to a war of the US against Britain and France while at the same time putting down the Confederate Rebellion.
