Transcript of Battle between the States

The Civil War Ever wondered the life of a soldier during the civil war? Well then, heres the story! On November 6, 1860 Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the United States -- an event that outraged southern states. The Republican party had run on an anti-slavery platform, and many southerners felt that there was no longer a place for them in the Union. On December 20, 1860, South Carolina seceded. By Febrary 1, 1861, six more states -- Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas -- had split from the Union. The seceded states created the Confederate States of America and elected Jefferson Davis, a Mississippi Senator, as their provisional president There were two sides The Confederate The Union the Union states are the states that were against slavery. they were known as the "northern states" The Confederate states believed in slavery, they were known as the, "southern states" So, are you on the Confederate or the Union side? The Union side General Ulysses S. Grant was the eighteenth president of the united states and was also a military commander during the civil war. Grant began his life-long career as a soldier after he graduated United States Military Academy at West Point in 1843. Fighting in the Mexican American War, he was a close observer of the techniques of Generals Zachary Taylor and Winfield Scott. He resigned from the Army in 1854, then struggled to make a living in St. Louis and Galena, Illinois. When he joined the civil war he was against the confederate war. California

The Union states were... Confederate Side General Robert E. Lee as a career military officer who is best known for having commanded the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia in the American Civil War. The son of U.S. Revolutionary War hero, Henry ("Light Horse Harry") Lee III, and a top graduate of West Point, Robert E. Lee distinguished himself as an exceptional officer and combat engineer in the United States Army for 32 years before resigning to join the Confederate cause. By the end of the American Civil War, he was commanding general of the Confederate army. He became a postwar icon of the South's "lost cause," and is still admired to this day. The Confederate states were... South Carolina
North Carolina Photography during the civil war Back during the civil war, photography was new to the people, but it wouldn't hurt to discover it. During the civil war there have been many sketches, photogrpahy, and paintings. Let's take a look. Harper's Weekly (A Journal of Civilization) was an American political magazine based in New York City. Published by Harper & Brothers from 1857 until 1916, it featured foreign and domestic news, fiction, essays on many subjects, and humor. During its most influential period it was the forum of the political cartoonist Thomas Nast. The title of this photograph is "the sick soldier." This "staged" photograph shows a sick soldier during the civil war. Even though it is staged, the photograph clearly shows a moment that the soldier had some point during the war. Confederate state flag This photograph shows civil war soldiers lined up. This photograph shows the soldiers training for the actual civil war. You might be able to see that they are holding guns in a professional way. There is also a soldier in the front holding a sword. We predict it might be the, "leader." The Gettysburg Address Lincoln effectively summed up the consequences of the war in ten sentences. This is called the Gettysburg Address. The controversies that rule exact words and transcriptions merge in agreement of the main strain of thought. Lincoln stressed on the harmony between the early settlers and the Native Americans in the early years. He highlighted the fact that liberty and equality were the core components for the emancipation of America. Lincoln urged the common man and politician to consider the lives lost in the attempt to save the nation from colonization, and pay tribute to the unsung heroes. He emphasized on the fact that the Gettysburg Address may be forgotten in time, but not the soldiers who willingly laid down their lives. He urged the gathering to take up the cause and complete the task at hand, to usher in a government 'of the people, by the people and for the people'. Union States flag Want to know what the soldiers on both sides of the war wore? Well let's find out!!!! Confederate soldiers uniform: Confederate uniforms looked quite similar to the Union uniforms. Like the Union army early in the war, there were a wide variety of designs. Several southern volunteer units even wore dark blue uniforms that could be mistaken for the enemy on the battlefield.

By 1863, the confederate army began to use a common uniform design. All infantry officers and enlisted men would wear a gray uniform that included a frock coat hanging to mid thigh.
Union soldiers uniform: In the Union army, early in the war, soldiers wore a variety of uniforms. Many groups wore uniforms of their native country. For example, soldiers of Scotish decent often wore kilts. As the war went on, a standard uniform design emerged.

Infantry officers and enlisted men wore dark blue frock coats hanging to mid thigh. High ranking officers including majors, lieutenant colonels, colonels, and generals wore double-breasted coats. Lower ranking soldiers wore single breasted frock coats.
