Turning Points of the American Civil War

New Perspectives

Historians are continually reassessing the American Civil War. Inevitably, they return to five major battles: First Bull Run (July 1861), Shiloh (April 1862), Antietam (September 1862), Gettysburg (July 1863) and Vicksburg (July 1863) to determine if their historical significance as the war’s turning points over the past 150 years still holds. Civil War historian Stephen Engle revisits these pivotal battles and considers the role each played in the North’s ability to win the war. He will determine how they helped political leaders in Washington understand why Abraham Lincoln’s limited war of conciliation was ineffective, why he expanded his war aims and why the conflicts’ outcomes resonated beyond the battlefield.
