You have to set some parameters to get any sort of reasonable answer to this. In general, historians accredit more than 10,000 hostile actions (company sized or larger...meaning at least 200 soldiers fighting) and count 361 battles as Major Battles acknowledged by the US National Park Service as mos…t important. If you were to include squad or platoon sized actions (ie. 10 or more soldiers in combat), the number of battles would easily exceed a quarter million. ( Full Answer )

Sherman's troops took the city, but did not destroy it as they had with Atlanta. The Southern troops left the city and it was occupied without a fight. Sherman's army, traveling fast and light, reached Savannah on December 10, 1864 and found Confederate troops under Lt. General Hardee blocking th…em from the port. Instead, Sherman captured the lightly defended Fort McAllister on the Ogeechee River. With supplies and heavy guns delivered from a Union fleet, Sherman sent an ultimatum to the city leaders on December 17: surrender or be destroyed. Hardee's troops slipped away across the river and the city was surrendered on December 21. ( Full Answer )

The start of the major campaigns, East and West. In the West, U.S. Grant emerged as a victorious army commander, though the credit initially went to his boss, the cautious, slow-moving Henry Halleck, who missed many opportunities to destroy the enemy. Still, by the end of the year, The Union had st…opped the Confederates from occupying Kentucky, and was near to liberating the Mississippi, thus ending the war in the West. In the East, the popular young General-in-Chief of the Union armies, George McLellan, decided to move on Richmond via the Peninsula, where he suffered a string of defeats by the newly-appointed Confederate commander Robert E. Lee. This was making the Confederacy look viable in the eyes the British, who were planning to support them. Mainly to keep the British out, Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, officially turning it into a war on slavery, making it diplomatically impossible for other countries to support the Confederates. Meanwhile McLellan's successors did not seem to be making much headway by the end of the year. Lincoln had not yet learned to choose good Generals. ( Full Answer )
Gettysburg is a small Pennsylvania town. The Union and Confederatearmies fought a battle over three days. Lee's Confederate Armyfaced north.Mead's Union army faced south. On the first day, Leeattacked to his left. The Union army was successful in capturing ahill, Little Round Top. It put its artille…ry up there. It didsevere damage to the Confederate forces. The second day, theconfederate forces attacked to the right. While the Confederatesmade progress, the attack did not start until late in theafternoon. It was too late to keep pressing on and try for victory.The third day General Lee shot an artillery barrage at the centerof the Union Line. It went over the head of all the solders. ThenGeneral Pickett sent his army to attack the center of the Unionlines. The Confederates marched toward the Union cannon andriflemen. Confederate solders fell dead. Very few of theConfederate solders reached the Union lines. "Picket's Charge" hasbecome synonyms with futility. The Confederate cavalry leader,General Jeb Stuart, tried to break through the Union Lines from therear. He was held off by General Custer who had a force only onetenth of his size. (General Custer had breech loading rifles.Stuart had muzzle loaders. Custer's breech loading rifles would notbe the answer in the future when Chief Sitting Bull would getrepeating rifles, but that is another story.) After the fiasco ofPickets Charge, Lee retreated to the south. The Union held a Celebration for the victory at Gettysburg. As anafterthought, they invited President Lincoln to speak. The first speaker used a technique making the United States the NewRoman Empire bringing that glory back to the world. He was ManifestDestiny. Then Abraham Lincoln stood and presented a different picture.Instead of Rome, we were bringing a government that had a brand newpurpose in the world. "Four score and seven years ago, our Fathers set forth on thiscontinent a new Nation... Addendum to above answer* Actually, Custer was not outnumbered ten to one, if one counts theentire Union cavalry force engaged in that battle. Custer did notcommand all the Union cavalry on the field, just three brigades.Union forces had several cannon and support positioned in a cornerof the battlefield, and these supported them in the fight. Also, Stuart's men were still worn out from their ride aroundMeade's army, having arrived the evening before. Many horses werealso still unfit for battle. The total engaged as far as cavalry were: Union, 3500, Confederate,4400. Although the battle did halt Stuart's advance, it isconsidered an inconclusive affair. ( Full Answer )

Almost every Civil War battle was on a creek. There was bound to be one somewhere on the battlefield. The Confederates called the battles after the nearest town; the Yankees named the same battle after the most prominent body of water nearby. So, for instance, the Battle of Antietam is usually kn…own by that Yankee-given name, for Antietam Creek. The Rebels called it Sharpsburg. Another was what the Confederates called the First and Second Battles of Manassas. The Yankees called these Bull Run. A "run" is a big creek in that part of Virginia, the bulls were buffalo seen there by early settlers. ( Full Answer )
Brilliant Confederate victory by Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson in May 1863, before the latter's mortal wounding by his own side (possibly deliberate). It was Lee's last great triumph. He managed to wrong-foot the otherwise successful Union General Joe Hooker, who was replaced. But he would so…on be defeated at Gettysburg. ( Full Answer )
It was an election year, and Lincoln urgently needed victories. In March, he appointed U.S. Grant as General-in-Chief. Grant immediately ended the system of prisoner-exchange, knowing that the Confederates would run out of men first. Then he ordered Sherman to destroy the Army of Tennessee, while h…e himself attended to Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia. Neither campaign appeared to be succeeding, and Lincoln believed he would be voted out in November. When Sherman failed to destroy the Army of Tennessee, he decided to destroy the rich farmland of Georgia instead, helping to starve the Confederate troops in the field. When Georgian soldiers in Lee's army heard about this, they deserted in large numbers. Just at this time, the port of Mobile was liberated, and Phil Sheridan laid waste to the Shenandoah Valley, driving out the Confederates in a dramatic pursuit. By the end of the year, Lincoln had been re-elected, and after that the Confederates had no hope of winning. They only held on in a vain effort to prove that they were not the sort of people to give up easily. ( Full Answer )
In the West, the capture of Vicksburg, the last Confederate stronghold on the Mississippi. In the East (on the same day, by chance), the devastating Confederate defeat at Gettysburg, ending Lee's hopes of invading the North, and putting him out of action till the following spring. In Tennessee, th…e Army of the Cumberland came close to destruction at Chiockamauga, and was besieged in Chattanooga - saved from starvation by Grant, who was rapidly gaining enough credibility for the job of General-in-Chief, to which he would soon be appointed.

If you were an onlooker of any of the Civil War battles, here is what you would have seen. Mini' balls (bullets) tearing soldiers' limbs to shreds. Blood covered the ground, and a day later, the area reaked with stench. Canons blasted arms and legs completely off of bodies. One man recalled in a let…ter home, that while his brigade had been marching through the woods, he came across a corpse that had not been buried from the battle before. The man described the corpse's body in grisly detail. Soldiers looked forward to firing at their enemies, but many also struggled with the fear of being killed on the battlefield. ( Full Answer )

It enjoyed huge prosperity because all kinds of war supplies were in demand from its factories and farms.
The North prospered, because its industrial base was highly active, manufacturing war supplies, and skilled immigrants were continuing to arrive from Europe. The South suffered because its ports were blockaded and it could not export its one valuable commodity which was cotton, and it had no manufa…cturing base of its own. ( Full Answer )
A battle in the Civil War was a thing that, if many people today were to watch, would cause the viewer to feel like vomiting. Immensely bloody, a single battle could bring thousands of deaths; and in some locations, the corpses were so many that they literally covered the ground. During the actual …battle, one can imagine the excitement and fear of a soldier in combat. Although many men and boys couldn't wait to shoot at their enemies, there also rested upon them an intense spirit of fear, knowing that they themselves could be shot down just as easily, and forgotten. The day after a battle, soldiers dug long trenches, called mass graves , and cast the bodies of their fellow soldiers into them. These mass graves were usually left unmarked, or perhaps marked minimumly with only the number of men buried. ( Full Answer )
In January, Robert E. Lee was appointed to the new Confederate post of General-in-Chief - too late to make any difference to the war situation. Until March, the Siege of Petersburg simply ground on, with Grant waiting for Lee to run out of men and supplies. (He had ended the system of prisoner exch…ange.) In February, Sherman had crossed from Georgia into South Carolina and continued his punitive raids on farms and railroads, before proceeding into North Carolina, where Joseph Johnston's small army caused him minor casualties. Finally, Lee broke out of Petersburg, and tried to join forces with Johnston, but ran out of steam and surrendered to Grant at Appomattox. Johnston would surrender to Sherman two weeks later. In between those two events, Lincoln had been assassinated in Washington. ( Full Answer )

The Battle of Gettysburg, July 1 - 3, 1863 was the bloodiest battle of the US Civil War with over 50,000 casualties killed, wounded, and missing. The Battle of Antietam was the worst single day, September 17, 1862, and saw over 23,000 casualties.
Vicksburg was the most cosrtly to the Confederates, because it liberated the Mississippi, and effectively ended the war in the West, freeing-up Grant and Sherman to join forces with the Army of the Cumberland at Chattanooga. Gettysburg is often cited as the key turning-point of the war, but this wa…s more psychological than strategic, reflecting Lee's failure to invade the North, and the diminshed effectiveness of his army after the death of Stonewall Jackson. Nothing much happened in the East as a result of Gettysburg. ( Full Answer )

Lee's attempted invasion in June 1863, hoping to feed and equip his troops with plunder from this prosperous state. It led to his historic defeat at Gettysburg. NEW RESPONDENT Furthermore the McCausland's Chambersburg Raid, ordered by Confederate Gen. Jubal Early, that took place on July 28 - August… 4, 1864. This was not an ordinary raid. Early ordered McCausland to place a ransom of $ 100,000 in gold or $ 500,000 in Northern money on the town of Chambersburg as a retaliation for the burning of three houses in Jefferson County -VA carried out by order of the federal military authority. Ifl the Pennsylvanians refused to pay McCausland had to burn the entire Town.

First big Union victory. It spelt the end of Confederate hopes in the West, and gave new credibility to Grant.

It was a Confederate camp near Columbus, Georgia for housing Union prisoners. After Grant ended the system of prisoner-exchange, this camp became notoriously overcrowded. As the Confederates themselves were on half-rations by this stage, there wasn't going to be much left over to feed the prisoners…. This led to starvation, gang warfare, and even cannibalism. Conditions were so shocking that the commandant was hanged after the war. ( Full Answer )
The battle of Chickmauga was a much needed victory for the South in the US Civil War. The battle took place on September 19 to the 20th in 1863. The Confederate victory there allowed the South to gain control of Chattanooga, Tennessee, which was a main rail center. This was of tactical importance. T…he victory was due for the most part because of the transfer by railroad of General Longstreet's forces in Virginia to reinforce General Bragg. Many historians believe that if Bragg had pursued the Union forces, it would have added more victories and lengthened the war. This is exactly what the South wanted as it believed Northern public opinion would have increased to the point of a cease fire and the end of the efforts by Lincoln to continue this horrible war.
