Best Answer

Some, but not all of the important battles included Gettysburg, the Battles of Bull Run and Antietam. Battle of Cemetery Ridge, Battle of Chesapeake Bay - Signaled the end of the war Battle of New Orleans -Gave Union forces use of Mississippi River Battle of Fort Sumter - among the first battles Battle of Vicksburg Battle at Appomatox (sp)- Lee surrendered here to Grant at Appomatox Courthouse Answer Correction Antietam was only 1 battle over 2 days. Bull Run(aka Manasas) was 2 battles. Battle of New Orleans - By June 1862, New Orleans was in the hands of the Union but also the forts along the northern portion of the Mississippi River. More Important Battles Chickamauga, TN Champion's Hill, MS - forced Confederates into Vicksburg defenses. Atlanta, GA - primary industrial center of South Franklin, TN - Confederate charge almost on the scale of Pickett's charge at Gettysburg. Fredericksburg Brice's Crossroads, MS - small by most standards but Gen Forest routed a force twice his size. Naval Confrontation of Monitor & Merrimac - first use of ironclad in battle. Forts Henry & Donnelson - Broke the Confederate hold on the northern portion of Mississippi River.
