It was helpful, though none of the answerers noticed the point it was a noun phrase that was to be translated, and the versions provided were all adjectival phrases. I chose to use "timepos de la preguerra" or simply "preguerra", for the context made up for the lost element "American Civil War". Thanx a million for the help!
