This was the battle that started the Civil War. Four states joined the confederacy.
1st battle of the Civil War, the south wins by running like a bunch of screaming banshees and scares the daylight out of the north. The north then stampedes the civilians.
This the first battle between two metal covered ships. The north (Monitor) is successful in hold off the south ( Merrimack).
This war was the bloodiest war out of all wars. The reason why the union won is because one of the soldiers from the south dropped the plan and the north soldiers found it.
President Abraham Lincoln made his emancipation proclamation, stated that all slaves are free, after winning the Battle of Antietam
