Shows 78 battlefield locations with chronological history- from the confederacy’s bombardment of Fort Sumter to General Lee’s surrender at Appomattox Courthouse.

But they also refused to suffer northern invasion without resistance and retaliation. The North had fronts, over land and from the sea. Both adversaries tired of years of death and widespread destruction; attrition eventually favored the North.
