    This concept is called "revolting" and is explained in this article in the War Academy. Here's an excerpt:

    Basically, a strong garrison of units in the city will help to stop any potential revolts. Welcome to the forums! :beer:

    1) Maintain a fairly strong garrison there while the city is in anarchy.
    2) Conquer the rest of the civ.
    3) Save a Great Artist and use him to build a Great Work in the city.
    4) There is an option "No city flipping from culture" in the Custom Game settings menu but this makes it impossible to use "culture bombing" to flip rivals' cities peacefully.

    Culture bombing is usually done by farming great artists, and then using them all to create great works in one of your cities that is really close to another civs city. It expands your cultural boundary over their city, and can cause it to revolt and therefore become yours.

    By original civ do you mean the one that you conquered it from? Or did that civ take it from a third civ and it went back to that one and not the one that you took it from?

    If your wondering, yes it does make a difference.
