Battle of Antietam (Battle of Sharpsburg) Sep 17 1862 On the day there was no clear winner on the battlefield, even though there were 23,000 casualties. But the strategic winner was the North. General Lee withdrew his troops from Maryland and was never seen there again. President Lincoln also made political capital out of the battle which helped to keep Great Britain out of the war.

The north was fighting the south and the north win the battle of the war

Antietam was a North win, but not a good one as Gen. McClellan let Robert E Lee escape

the north learned that they weren't invincible and the south learned that they can win battles

the south won the battle of Fort Wagner and they also showed how valueable the blacks were

It was an important Confederate Victory, that they needed to win.

In some ways. It proved that the South could not win when it came to fight on northern land. If the South couldn't win in the North then they could not win the war.

Both Antietam and Gettysburg represent the two most serious efforts by the South to bring the war North. By failing to win a decisive victory, the South's chance at winning independence from the North diminished. Some call Gettysburg, the high water mark of the Confederacy. On the same day Pickett's charge failed, Vicksburg also surrendered, from that point onward it was all downhill for the South.

Is this a serious question? The north won the Battle of Gettysburg... not the South...

The battle ended in a draw, but gave Lincoln the victory he was after

The Battle of Antietam took place on September 17, 1862 in Washington County, Maryland. It was considered a strategic win for the Union.

Shiloh, Antietam, Gettysburg, Lookout Mountain, Atlanta, The Wilderness…

It made Lee confident enough to start invading the North - which would probably have succeeded, except for the strange accident of the Northern win at Antietam.

Retreated to Virginia, where they would soon win a decisive victory at Fredericksburg.

They won the Gettysburg battle because they could afors to lose men but the south couldnt. The real reason that the North won was because the south had to retreat from the battle, bercause they was loseing men that they needed. If the south didnt retreat they could have won. I guess we will never know.

I don't know why the south won the battle of fredericksburg!?!?!?

no they werent because the north and a south had a gentlemans agreement that if the south used their slaves the fight would be unfair and the south would win

yes they have won this battle

It showed the north the south could fight and win, but also lead to over confidence.
