Short for "status quo ante bellum" meaning "the state before the war." Used to reinstate property boundaries, ownership, etc after a nation is defeated. Kinda opposite its contemporary meaning, "the way things are now."
In spite of the principle of status quo, West Virginia was not restored as part of Virginia after the (US) Civil War.
