USA won both wars.

It is not that every time the Rebel wins. That is only your notion. First USA was the Rebel & then was the suppressor of revolt. It justified both the roles. Winning over the British, some 3500 miles away isn't the same as winning a cross-border war. Finally USA & the British were the same stock. it is not as if the natives won the war with the British.

First of all, the USA did not exist prior to the Revolutionary War. They were considered colonies of England, subject to the Crown and Parliament. They broke away from the tyrannical rule of King George and declared their independence. Once they were apart from England, they became one nation, United States of America. The southern states were considered equals with the other states, not colonies. When the southern states seceded from the USA, the Civil War (not "so called" nor quotes needed) was fought to preserve the Union. You seem to have most of the facts but have misinterpreted them.

Britain allowed Southern ships to use its ports and even built Confederate warships, such as the Alabama, which sank more than sixty Union ships on the high seas. British shipbuilders also agreed to build two ironclad warships with Laird rams, which the Confederates could use to pierce the hulls of enemy ships. On November 8, 1861, the USS San Jacinto, commanded by Union Captain Charles Wilkes, intercepted the British mail packet RMS Trent and removed, as contraband of war, two Confederate diplomats, James Mason and John Slidell. The envoys were bound for Great Britain to press the Confederacy’s case for diplomatic recognition and financial support for the Confederacy in the name of King Cotton.
