  • General Lee wants to invade the capital to end the war.
  • Lincoln is ready for it though and sends troops to keep the Confederate from coming in.
  • The battle starts on July 1, 1863 in Gettysburg. This fight is overall the bloodiest battle in the whole Civil War with 51,112 causalities for both sides. After this battle, the Confederates never attack the Union directly.
  • Even though the Confederates try to use smart tactics (like the fish hook), the landscape gives the Union the upper hand which gives them the victory. About four months later, Lincoln says a speech known as the Gettysburg Address.
  • The Union Won!
  • On April 6, 1865, with the Confederates running out of food and supplies, "General Lee surrenders to Grant at Wilmer Mclean's" home.
  • Sure is.
  • The weather's nice out today.
  • All Confederate generals are allowed to live with no punishments and their starving soldiers are feed from the Union's food. This ends the Civil War and starts the United States' journey to heal the divided country.
  • We are now brothers again.
