The War of Estherian Independence was a civil war fought in the United Provinces of East Antigonia from 1870 to 1874, between the United Provinces and Estheria. The War began in 1870 after the United Provinces of East Antigonia voted to ban the practice of slavery, which was a cornerstone of the economies of the Southern Provinces of what was later known as Estheria, immediately following the decision to ban slavery, wealthy Southern landowners and government officials took control of the Southern provinces and declared independence from the United Provinces. The loyalists of the Provinces in the North, proclaimed support for the Constitution and faced the secessionists of Estheria.
