It was night and the Confederates were at the town of Sharpsburg, but the Union troops won the battle. Numerous people were killed, people I had just spoke to this morning gone. I knew their families would be devastated, my would’ve too but luckily I was just injured.
Abolitionists would take slaves away from them and would not get punished. They wanted to end slavery for good, which would result in the end of the Southern economy. It almost was a Northern attack. The North was trying to end the South based off the South’s point of view. The Northerners did not even care about the South.
He calls these battles from 1861-1863. After the defeat at Gettysburg in 1863 the southern cause was doomed. The South did not have the resources to fight a long war. At the outset the North numbered 20 million people; the South had only nine million, four million of these were slaves. The Federals waged a war against Southern civilians destroying their crops, their cities, and their homes.
With every bit of German support gone, the Allied Air Force had also suffered its losses. Many Allied pilots knew that it was tough exclaiming “we’re killing them as fast as they come at us, but [the Allied forces] can’t hold out much longer” (116). In the
Here at Gettysburg in Southern Pennsylvania after the three day battle and the win for the Union Gettysburg was brewed after the attack on Ft. Sumter. The Union won with a tactic! The tactic was to barricade and surround the town of Gettysburg on July 1-3 1863 and the Confederates were running low on supplies and the Confederates had no way to get their supplies because the Union was blocking the trade routes and the paths. We have word that 165,000 troops clashed on the Gettysburg fighting ground in the three day battle Abraham Lincoln made a code and the code’s name is the Gettysburg Address!
The Civil War was bloody, killing around 620,000 people. Most of these people were killed by disease and sickness, and medicine was important. The Civil War split the country pinning North against South over the issue of slavery. Many things such as the Kansas-Nebraska act and the election of Abraham Lincoln led to the succession of 11 southern states. The war lasted from 1861 to 1865, and eventually the Union (the North) came out victorious under Ulysses S. Grant.
The Panic of 1873 contributed to The Great Railroad Strike of 1877 by allowing hardworking people to experience financial struggle and by causing southern blacks to nearly lose the little hope they had remaining. Although The Panic of 1873 contributed to many bad things, it ended in a way many did not think it would end. President Hayes eventually [sent many troops and militia from city to city] where strike occurred to decrease and soon cease all strikes until it was over (PBS 1). In 1878, many believe that this was when the strike was over, but many smaller strikes resulted thereafter from The Great Railroad Strike. But what we refer to as The Great Railroad Strike of 1877 finally ended in 1879.
It has been a long 4 months since blood has been shed in the, already finished, Battle of Gettysburg. The battle lasted three long, hellish days, of blood, sickness, amputated limbs, death and everything else that comes along with war. For all that I know, General Lee is completely insane to have tried to invade the North; why would he do that? Already contradicting what I have previously said, insanity is not really the word; overconfidence would be it. Seeing as though he came from a series of wins, it is not a surprise that General Lee would become overconfident, but with overconfidence comes the sense that victory is guaranteed; which is not.
The Vietnam War was a conflict that was extremely controversial. President Johnson’s decision to start the war as well as his refusal to admit defeat caused a huge amount of outrage in America. America failed in its overall goal of Containing Communism because the Vietnam War delivered a huge loss for America in terms of lives, money, and morale, and the war did not prevent Vietnam from falling to the Communist North Vietnamese. The Vietnam War was extremely taxing to America in many ways.
“The turning point of the war. After his successes at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville Lee invaded the North again. After trying to break the Union lines for two days he tries a frontal assault on the entrenched Union forces. “Pickett’s Charge” as this is known fails and Lee retreats back to Virginia. Never again would the South have a chance to win the war or threaten the North” (http://www.iss.k12.nc.us).
Throughout much of the battle, General Lee and his aggressiveness served him well, but as the battle came to a close, that aggressiveness led to disaster. Lee instructed his almost 15,000 soldiers to attack the center of the Union force, but the Union side was ready with reinforcements on top of the 6,500 soldiers already waiting. With their force spread about two miles wide, they fired their artillery to the sky hoping that some of their bullets would find their mark, and many did. The Union guns were quick to reply and the guns raged on for more than an hour, the heaviest combat of the Civil War. As the Confederate soldiers made the trek through “no-man’s land,” Union artillery hurt their lines a lot.
Brief Summary Ulysses S. Grant’s armies approached on Vicksburg, surrounding the city and entrapping a Confederate army under Lt. Gen. John Pemberton. On July 4, Vicksburg surrendered after prolonged siege operations. This was the climax of one of the most brilliant campaigns of the war. With the loss of Pemberton’s army and this critical fortress on the Mississippi River, the Confederacy was effectively split in half. Grant’s triumph in the West raised by his reputation, leading eventually to his arrangement as General-in-Chief of the Union armies.
It is believed that their great generals posed in this picture as a “victory pose”. The generals Wright, Logan, Meade, Parke and Humphreys (from left to right) are in the picture. The photo was taken under a trellis tent awning at a unknown location. The Civil War ended on May 9th, 1865 with a Union victory. The photograph was taken approximately one month after the end of the Civil war.
Total War left the south in complete and pointless destruction. William Tecumseh Sherman was one cruel general. He lead a march of veterans that would overrun and eventually desolated the south (Overly). Originally both sides believed the war would be a short one resulting in only
Solutions to The Wounded Angels The Battle of Gettysburg fought on July 1863. This was a war between the Union Army and The Confederates. The Union Army won the battle that stopped the second invasion of the North. The Battle of Gettysburg was known as one of the bloodiest battles ever, which is crazy to think how many people got injured or even killed.
