|I agree with you Old North State, but I still believe there was the one deciding factor that changed the war. Every one of the voting options were very important, but some was less so compared to others. Antietam kept England from supporting the south... Vicksburg i think was a huge blow but not to the same extent that antietam was. If Antietam had not influenced England then it would have been just another battle... very bloody battle but never the less just another battle. Gettysburg left the ANV so weakened it could not easily replenish it's numbers lost. If you think about the previous battles Lee fought in he always replenished his losses. Why was Gettysburg different? Was it more because of the Commanders he lost?
