Battles of the Civil War

There were literally hundreds of battles in the civil war between 1861-1865, ranging anywhere from 0-50,000 casualties. Here are just a few of the famous battles. Check out a detailed timeline of the most significant battles here..

April '61


The Beginings

The first of two battles fought near Manassas, Virginia. Was the first major battle of the war and the first with any significant casualties. Showed the north that it would not be as easy as they thought to quell the rebellion.

Appomattox Virginia, April 9th.The final battle of the war saw the Confederates outnumbered 4 to 1. (about 100k to 25k). About 500 confederate troops were killed before the remaining men surrendered under General Robert E. Lee.

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, July 1st-3rd. Approx. 50,000 lives lost in equal numbers. One of the longest and the most deadliest battle of the war.

In addition to being the bloodiest battle of the war, Gettysburg was also further north than most major battles and was considered the major turning point in the war.

The war began when Confederate forces fired upon Fort Sumpter. Although there were no casualities this was really the first battle of the war.
