Ironically this battle was 1 month after the civil war had officially ended! This was A quick and unexpected battle by a Confederate general. Nevertheless, the Confederacy won this battle.
This was supposed to be the last and final battle of the civil war. When general took his last stand at the town of Appomattox Courthouse, as he then saw the over powering forces of the Union troops much greater than his own. At that point he knew it was either death or surrender to the Union forces, and as the wise man he was he accepted defeat.
This was intentioned to let some union troops meet up with smaller union troops. By this time in the war the Confederate forces were growing desperate.Although, even with this disparity creeping over the Confederacy General Lee led a well thought out surprise attack and forced the union troops to withdraw.
On May 8 the Confederates caught up to the Union army near the little town of Spotsylvania and a series of small wars that followed over nearly 2 weeks is called the Battle of Spotsylvania, PA. This ended in Grant leading the solders more south.
This speech was given by President Lincoln.It was dedicated to all the men weather alive or dead or alive the grounds which the war was fought on.
This was an attempt by the union forces to gain Beaumont and Houston. Although that was the plan, The Confederacy outnumbered 42 to 5,000, amazingly without 1 death, won the battle and killed over 100 Union troops!
The 54th Massachusetts Infantry, an all African American troop, attacked Fort Wagner at Charleston, South Carolina. It was a Union attack led by Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, who was killed in battle. There were only twelve Confederate casualties.
This was a turning point in the civil war for the Union! The Union took Vicksburg which cut off connection and supplies across part of the Mississippi river for the Confederate States of America.
This war happened because General Lee wanted to make the north surrender. His plan was to fight his way up and obtain a great amount of northern territory, insomuch that he would devastate them. Sadly for the confederacy this plan failed when the union defeated them at Gettysburg.
The battle of Chancellorsville was a Civil War battle in 1863 in Virgina, won by the Confederacy. There was about 3,271 casualties for both The Union and Confederate Armies. The battle was considered General Robert Lee's "perfect battle" and their leading commander Stone Wall Jackson died of war wounds. Even though the Confederate won they lost Jackson and the battle hurt them badly too.
In this battle there were five ships. Out of these five ships the Neptune got sunk, and two of the union ships were captured. The confederacy won this battle.
This document was signed by President Lincoln himself, but did not abolish slavery. Fortunately it did free all the slaves in the south!
General Burnside had 122,000 men and General Lee had 79,000 men. General Burnside directly crossed Lee's army. The Confederates killed 13,000 of the union men. As for the Confederates, they lost 5,000 men
The Confederate army lead by General Robert E. Lee and the Union army lead by General George B. McClellan, fought at Antietam Creek near Sharpsburg, Maryland on September 17. It was know as the bloodiest single day battle in American history.
This battle started the civil war.President Lincoln calls for 75,000 volunteer troops to stop the rebellion. This action led to an additional 4 states seceding.
The Texas Secession Convention was a series of events leading up to Texas secession. This took many months and after a series of events Texas declared itself as the 7th state to join the Confederate States of America.
