  • Battle of Bull Run (July 21, 1861)
  • There is more of them than us, where are the reinforcements?!
  • Shiloh (April 6, 1862 - April 7, 1862)
  • If we sneak up on them they won't see it coming, advance quietly
  • Antietam/Battle of Sharpsburg (September 17, 1862)
  • Today I will be announcing the emancipation proclamation
  • The first major battle of the civil war was the Battle of Bull Run. Following president Abraham Lincoln's orders, the Union army marched from Washington D.C., to attempt to capture the Confederate capitol of Richmond. Around 42 kilometres into the march the Union army was met by the Confederate Army. At first it was thought that the Union would win, but then the confederates received reinforcements and eventually won the battle.
  • Gettysburg (July 1, 1863 - July 3, 1863)
  • Keep fighting, reinforcements are due soon and then we push up cemetery ridge!
  • The union army had accomplished several wins and were planning to advance south from Tennessee to capture the important railway hub in Mississippi. To defend the hub the Confederates reinforced the town of Corinth. When the first part of the union army arrived they set up camp just outside of that down. To their surprise, the Confederates attacked early and looked to be winning the battle, until the second part of the Union army arrived.
  • Vicksburg (May 22, 1863 - July 4, 1863)
  • Advance quietly once you cross the river and sneak up on them
  • The Confederate general had decided to take the war to the north, planning to move into Pennsylvania and threaten Washington D.C. His plans fell into Union hands and when the two sides met at Antietam where 23,000 men were killed in a draw. After the battle President Lincoln announced the Emancipation Proclamation.
  • Battle of Atlanta (July 22, 1864)
  • After the President Lincoln had replaced his generals, the confederates had won a few minor battles giving the Confederate general renewed confidence in his plan to invade the north. The two armies met once again in Pennsylvania. Eventually the Union Army won the battle and later that year President Lincoln delivered his famous Gettysburg address.
  • Keep going!
  • Vicksburg, Mississippi was a central location to a number of towns around it. Unfortunately for the Union it was controlled by the Confederates who had it heavily guarded. But the Union General Ulysses S. Grant came up with the plan to march south, past Vicksburg and cross the river where it was undefended, march back north to surprise the Confederates, after around 2 months of fighting the Confederate general surrendered.
  • Just outside the city of Atlanta, a major transportation and supply hub for the confederates, yet another battle between the two armies. Even though the confederates had more men, the Union still managed to win the battle, with Union general William T. Sherman ordering his army to destroy all confederate assets
  • I want this place burned so they can't take back anything!
