FC: The Civil war was the war where we killed our own people and hurt our selves.The Civil war started because of slavery and caused the north and the south to secede from each other.
1: The Civil War is an American memory In this memory the conflict was quick and easy, the adversaries are little more than cartoon like tin soldiers whose brightly colored uniforms make them ideal targets for straight shooting American frontiersmen.
2: The battle of Saratoga was the turning point in the revolutionary war.During the summer of 1776, a powerful army under British General Sir William Howe invaded the New York City area. His professional troops defeated General George Washington's less trained forces. An ill advised American invasion of Canada had come to an appalling end, its once confident regiments reduced to a barely disciplined mob by smallpox and pursuing British troops through the Lake Champlain Valley.
3: For nearly three weeks Burgoyne waited but Clinton did not come. By now Burgoyne's situation was critical. Faced by a growing American army without hope of help from the south, and with supplies rapidly diminishing, the British army became weaker with each passing day. Burgoyne had to choose between advancing or retreating.
4: The battle of Saratoga was won by the union. Some people call it the battle of Freeman's farm. The British had a general John Burgoyne.
5: He won a small tactical victory over General Horatio Gates and the Continental Army in the September 19 Battle of Freeman's Farm at the cost of significant casualties.
