THIS IS OF THE GENERALS IN THE NORTH AND SOUTH. 1. 11 STATES SECEDED FROM THE UNITED STATES. 2. GETTYSBURG WAS THE BLOODIEST BATTLE. 3. MORE THAN 400,000 SOLDIERS WERE CAPTURED IN THE DURATION OF THE WAR. 4. THE AVERAGE AGE OF THE SOLDIERS WAS 25.8 YEARS. (civilwar.org) Anna Leigh Hayes 3/17/14
William Tecumseh Sherman. My fave general. War sucks, but he did what needed to be done in order to end the war. How many more lives would have been lost in countless battles had the Confederates have been able to sustain themselves from home?
