Sherman's March to the Sea (November 15–December 21, 1864)

The Union is coming through the hart of Atlanta. The one who is leading this march is William T Sherman. They have just been destroying our home for weeks. The ending point we hope is in Savannah. This march has hit us hard.


Battle of Chickamauga

The Battle of Chickamauga in North Georgia is not far from Chattanooga, Tennessee. This was the first battle fought in the south. It is second to Gettysburg in the number of casualties. This has now boosted our confidence for the war.

Please see the video of what life was like preparing for the battle of Chickamauga.

150th anniversary Battle of Chickamauga


Andersonville is our pow camp. This camp was built to hold 10,000 soldiers. We have been doing so well with catching prisoners that we have exceeded from 10,000 to 33,000 prisoners. We are proud of our camp leader Henry Wirz for maintaining this large amount of prisoners with limited resources.

Anaconda Plan

This strategy that the north is trying to pull on us will not work. Just because you blocked off our ports doesn't mean you can stop us. We have a scheme of are own called King Cotton so watch out Sherman. We have already scared one of your senators, see his quote below.

Senator William H. Seward from New York: Without the firing of a gun, without drawing a sword, should they [Northerners] make war upon us [Southerners], we could bring the whole world to our feet. What would happen if no cotton was furnished for three years? . . England would topple headlong and carry the whole civilized world with her. No, you dare not make war on cotton! No power on earth dares make war upon it. Cotton is King."
