What were the 5 major battles of the civil war what effect did they have towards the end of the civil war?

battle of manassas (bullrun) was the first major battle Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point in the war the battle of Vicksburg divided the south ( the north took controll over the Mississippi river) firing on fort Sumter (by the confederacy) marked the beginning of the war and the battle of lexiton and concord EDIT: First of all, Lexington and Concord was the American Revolution... But besides that, a few of the battles were The Battle of Bull Run, Battle of Antietam, Battle of Fredericksburg, Battle of Chancellorsville, Battle of Shiloh, Battle of Vicksburg, and Battle of Gettysburg. The Battle of Bull Run showed that both sides needed training and the Battle of Antietam did as well, although North won the second one because Robert E. Lee was forced to retreat. The Confederacy won the Battle of Fredericksburg and the Battle of Chancellorsville, but lost an important war leader during them. The Battle of Shiloh was one of the bloodiest wars of the Civil War and during it, the North blockaded the Confederacy's ports. During the Battle of Vicksburg, the North took the Mississippi River and split the Confederacy in half. The Battle of Gettysburg was the major turning part of the war where the North pretty much won the war after winning that battle.
