From the US Civil War, four wars have begun under Democratic administrations:

Two wars have ended under Democratic administrations as follows:

From the US Civil War, five wars have begun under Republican administrations:

Five wars have also ended under Republican administrations as follows:

But, it also now seems more than likely this Republican administration can shove the responsibility for ending these disasters off on someone else.
