Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution

“Congress shall have power to declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water”

Five wars have been declared by Congress under their constitutional power to do so: The War of 1812, the Mexican-American War, the Spanish-American War, World War I, and World War II. The Korean War was the first modern example of the U.S. being taken to war without a constitutional formal declaration, and this has been repeated in every armed conflict since.
