antebellum / antes de la guerra (civil norteamericana)


Explanation:
Adj., of or during the period before a war, esp. the American Civil War (the antebellum South). Collins English Dictionary, Millenium Edition.
It is sometimes better to use the latin word itself rather than looking for a straight translation (e.g. curriculum vitae, post scriptum, etc)
