    When did the Baptist Churches split into Northern and Southern? Was it during or after the Civil War? I am curious as to how this came about.

    1845 it is.

    Here's a link to a short history:

    SOUTHERN BAPTISTS

    Briefly, I think it's fair to say the Triennial Convention split was a result of differences over denominational structure (with the Southerners preferring a more central organization, as opposed to the society system preferred by the Northerners), a belief among the Southerners that they were being short-changed with home missions, and ... of course, slavery.
