4: There weren't many great generals in the Civil War. Though, the best one has the worst reputation even today. But, if you really think about it, the war could have possibly gone on even longer without this man. His name is William Tecumseh Sherman. Many people don't truly know who Sherman was. When he was just only 9 years old, his father had died. He was a very famous judge. It was too bad for Sherman, but then Thomas Ewing adopted him. He was soon graduating (6th in his class) at West Point. Then he served as an officer in the Mexican war. Then Sherman commanded as colonel in the Civil War! In 1884 (he served in lots of wars by now) Sherman retired from the army. Sherman was the very first military leader to be recognized. What Sherman is mainly known for in the army was his military march. It took place at the end of the war. He marched through Georgia, Atlanta and North and South Carolina. It was just Sherman though; he had 62,000 troops to back him up! He destroyed much of the South (mainly their economic resources.) This took a very long time to reconstruct. Some people suggest that he terrorized civilians while others just say he ended the war.
5: Sherman's March Helped End the War! | Sherman's March in plain is just a regular old military march. They gave it a special name because it helped end our war. He basically really damaged the South's territory. I think that he was a great general. Sherman is very important to our history. He helped America end slavery, and stopped the South from becoming the ‘Confederates of America’ and we became just 1 union altogether. No matter what people say about Sherman, he was a great general.
6: There is one very big group of people in America, and those people lived in the South. They wanted to become a separate country. They wanted to do that so bad that they would do anything for it, even start a war. The war started on April 12, 1861. It happened in Charleston South Carolina. Later that day we surrendered at 2:30. It was a rough start of the war. The first bombardment of the war was at Fort Sumter. That was where the first shot in the Civil War happened. Confederate Forces fired on the fort like crazy! The next day a very heavy bombardment had happened, and this is just the beginning. Sadly we seceded from the fort, but at least no one was killed. None of us know why we really felt we needed to kill each other to get our ways. Or why they wanted to destroy Fort Sumter. There were a lot of ups and downs in the civil war! With lots of general changes, and losses, and comebacks. Though we are all the same country, men fought in this war for us, and died.
8: John Wilkes Booth was a very bad man, but the interesting part was that he was a famous actor. The good news is we killed him. John Wilkes Booth had a father named Junius Brutus Booth and a brother named Edwin Booth who were also famous actors. John had hatred for Lincoln from the moment he got elected. He was frustrated about the South's defeat just a couple days before. John and his co-conspirators were planning the attack on Lincoln for months. John was going to sneak from behind the curtain and shoot Lincoln. The bad news is that their plan worked. Lincoln was sitting in the private box when Booth was behind the curtain, in seconds he would be dead. Booth poked his gun out and BOOM, he was dead. Everyone was caught off guard. The good news is that we found him and assassinated him later on. After Booth shot Lincoln he jumped off the stage and broke his leg, he hobbled away. He went to a barn where he thought we would never find him. We actually did find him though. He wouldn't surrender, so we had to set the barn on fire. Some people think that another man was killed not Booth. But that wasn't the case, he actually got some injuries and then died in the morning. That was known as one of our nation's biggest victories. I can't imagine if we didn't assassinate him what the world would be like.
