The Battles so Far

The struggle to stay alive

Fort Sumter

The Union only had 80 people

The confederacy had about 500 people

The Confederacy won

The South got the fort

No one died but one man in the 100 gun salute


On December 20, 1860 I watched the South attack the Union. The Union only had about 80 soldiers while the South had about 500. Amazingly there where no casualties. South Carolina will long be known for this battle. This was the Confederacies first won battle. The Union did a 100 gun solute to surrender, during this salute a mans gun exploded killing him and scaring others.

Antietam

Single bloodiest one day battle

The Union had more troops come and out number the Confederacy 2 to 1

Lee used almost all of his soldiers while McClellan only used 2/3 of his army

Fighting stopped night

There was no declared winner

The Union pushed the Confederacy out of Maryland

This battle let Lincoln deliver the Emancipation Proclamation

Over 131,000 soldiers engaged in battle

About 87,000 soldiers for the Union and About 45,000 soldiers for the Confederacy


I have never seen a bloodier one day battle ever. The ground was stain red from this day. Over 22,000 casualties in one day. This battle started on September 17, 1862. This battle was so fierce that there is no winner. Even though the Union army drove the Confederate army out of Maryland there was no declared winner.

Vicksburg

Commander Grant had many strategies in this part of the war

The Union took hold of the Mississippi River and this was a main factor to the Confederacy loosing.

Grant took over the closest town to help lessen the casualties if innocent people.

110,000 Soldiers engaged in war

77,000 Union Soldiers and 33,000 Confederate Soldiers

The South surrendered on July 4th 1863


On July forth the South surrendered to the Union. The Union had surrounded the South. The Union used the Mississippi River to their advantage. The Confederate army was out numbered by a lot. The Union had about 77,000 soldiers and the Confederate army had almost 33,000 soldiers. This was almost an unfair battle.

Gettysburg

Bloodiest more than one day battle ever.

Over 50,000 people killed

The Union won

Robert E Lee for the South

George G Meade for the North


I am astounded by how much blood can be taken in only a few days. This battle will forever be the bloodiest battle ever. Although the Union won, at what cost did they win. The Union lost over 23,000 and the Confederacy lost over 28,000. Over 50,000 people lost their lives. It was great though when the Union declared victory

Sherman's March to the Sea

Both sides had to march to get where they were going

2 Union commander’s where killed in this battle

The North and South fought many times in this “March”/“Battle”

The Union refused to surrender, this caused many to die

The South surrendered on July 22

Over 75,000 soldiers engaged in battle

Over 34,00 or the Union and Over 40,000 soldiers for the Confederate army


Even though the Union won the Confederacy had more soldier. Sherman walked from Atlanta to Savannah burning everything in his path. There where almost 10,000 casualties. Sherman is a very intimidating man. Over 75,000 soldiers engaged in battle. Two Union commander’s where killed in this battle.

Fort Fisher

Terry in charge of the Colored troops and the navel with over 60 vessels

This was a valiant battle

Ended on January 13 1865

Over 9,000 soldiers for the Union and about 1,900 for the Confederacy

The Union won


Fort Fisher was attacked from the rear. Even thought the Union won the Confederacy caused lots of damage to the Union army. I watched with my own eyes the Unions victory on January 13 to the 15, 1865 in North Carolina. This was a hard and violent. Terry in charge of the Colored troops and the navel with over 60 vessels. Over 9,000 soldiers for the Union and about 1,900 for the Confederacy. The Union won

Appomattox Court house

The Union cavalry fell back at first but then they came back

The Union pressed and was going hard to defeat the Confederacy

Grant’s plan was to destroy the Confederacies army

Grant did not end up destroying Lee’s army

The Union won

The Union let the Confederates go and did not over celebrate

Almost 90,000 soldiers engaged in battle

Over 63,000 soldiers for the Union and 26,000 for the Confederacy


I watch this battle take place on April 9, 1865. Almost 90,000 people engaged in this battle. Over 63,000 soldiers for the Union and 26,000 for the Confederacy. After hours of fighting and clashing the Confederacy surrendered to the Union. There were almost 700 casualties. More than double the total people on the Union side have died, are wounded, and are missing would equal that number the the Confederacy. The Union let the Confederates go and did not over celebrate.
