Fact or Fiction?
Many of the facts around the American Civil War are still hotly debated. History may seem straightforward but history is written by humans who are notoriously poor witnesses. We do know that the northern and southern states in the US fought the war about issues of slavery and power while President Lincoln while in office. The southern states initiated the first skirmish at Fort Sumter, South Carolina. However, the north was better equipped, and had more men and money to support their war effort. Since the war ended many of the battlefields that played significant roles in the outcome of the war are threatened by development. Many of the 384 battlefields have been turned into shopping malls, housing developments and pizza parlors. The war was fought from southern Pennsylvania to Texas and New Mexico to the Florida coast, so the possibility exists that one of the battles happened in your hometown!
Have a wonderful day!
