What caused the war?
3 leaders of the union.
and "Little Mac".He won the battles of "Philippi" and "Rich Mountain".The third leader
I was interested in was George Custer, he had a major role at Appomattox and was
there when Robert E. Lee surrendered.Another interesting fact about George is he
died at age 37 in the battle of Little Bighorn.
2 major battles of the civil war
The first MAJOR battle of the Civil War was Battle of Bull Run. The leaders were General P.G.T. Beauregard,General Joseph E. Johnston (Confederate) and General Irvin McDowell (Union). The south winning effected the war by making the north doubt themselves and getting the south in good spirits thinking they will win the war. The first skirmish (small battle) was Philippi. This particular skirmish only lasted 20 minutes.In this skirmish no one died but on each side 10 or less were injured. Although it did not effect the war very much the union did win.
