the war began in 1861 when the confederates opened fire on fort summeter because a union supply ship... the south saw them self as an independent nation after the seceded from the union
I consider this attack on a sovreign american fort is an act of war. I declare a state of war between the United states and the rebilious states
The north knew how to capitulate the confederacy the "Anaconda plan" surround the confederacy and starve there people and economy
The South had the home field advantage and both sides belived they had the morale high-ground,the south fighting an invading army the north fighting to keep the union unified
every battle was bloody hundreds of thousands of lives were lost,including the battle of antitum,bull run pea ridge and getteysberg. After the battle of gettysberg lincon gave the famous gettysberg address which gave the Union a badly needed morale boost.
the war was bloody in fact it was the bloodiest conflict in american history. the War ended in 1865 when the south surrendered,but months later lincoin was assasinated and began antother terrible time in american history the reconstruction
After hearing about gettysberg i should probably write a address to give a morale boost to the union it shall be called the gettysberg adress
