The battle of Yorktown was one of the most important battles of the American Revolution. This battle took place in Yorktown, Virginia September 28th 1781. Before the battle had begun the French had arrived in Rhode Island with over 5,000 soldiers to aid the Americans to defeat the British. This put the Americans at an extreme advantage straight from the start, because the British had only about 6,000 soldiers. The British were also at a disadvantage considering that there was no way for them to get reinforcements.
The Battle/Siege of Vicksburg The Battle of Vicksburg was one of the most crucial points in the Civil War. It helped Eradicate the Rebels/Confederacy once and for all. The Civil War was fought for over 4 years and it lasted from 1861-1865. It was one of the most horrific wars the world has ever known and witnessed.
There were many different battles that took place during the Civil War, each of them being important in their own ways in the outcome of abolishing slavery and settling the differences between the North and South. One of the most significant battles in my opinion was Fort Sumter, also known as the First shot. This battle was significant because, of course, it was the first shot that took place during the Civil War starting the feuding and leading to the rest of the battles between the territories. This battle came about when South Carolina seceded from the Union. Major Robert Anderson and his soldiers were positioned at Fort Moultrie near mouth of the Charleston Harbor.1 Fearing for the safety of his men Anderson moved to Fort Sumter, which was in the middle of the Harbor.
During the American Revolution in the Southern backcountry, there were several battles that served as turning points of the war. These battles outcomes relied on the use/knowledge of the land and weaponry of the opponents. The execution of this knowledge allowed for these simple battles in the South Carolina backcountry to turn into turning points of the entire revolutionary war in the colonies. In the Southern backcountry, the majority of the fighting forces was made up of militia.
The Civil War began on April 12,1861 and ended on April 9, 1865. This four year battle had more than 50 major battles occurred during this tragic time in history. On March 6, 1862 - March 8, 1862 an important battle took place that left the Union Army with a good strategical position for the rest of the war. This battle was fought in Pea Ridge, Arkansas. This battle is known as the The Battle of Pea Ridge.

The Coercive Acts were a series of acts set up as a consequence of the Boston Tea Party. The Boston Tea Party was a “famed act of American colonial defiance served as a protest against taxation. Seeking to boost the troubled East India Company, British Parliament adjusted import duties with the passage of the Tea Act in 1773.

During the mid 1700’s in colonial America, the English colonies fought a war against the French and natives, known as the French and Indian war.
