Don't lose that
Somehow the Union army got a hold of the Confederate army's attack plans. This gave them an advantage.
This battle was the bloodiest civil war battle yet. Both sides suffered many losses
The first part of the battle took place in a cornfield north of the town. The second part of the battle took place a sunken road which earned the nickname "bloody lane" because so many men died there. The last part of the battle was on a bridge known as "Burnside's Bridge" because Union General Ambrose Burnside led his troops across the bridge.
I have issued the Emancipation Proclamation. It will free all slaves in the South once we (the Union) take it back.
