War! War! War!  Is that all you men talk about?  (Trying unsuccessfully to sound like Scarlet O'Hara, btw.)

Of the battles, skirmishes, contacts, raids, etc. mentioned... I would go with Antietam, even though I live reasonably close to GB.

By the time Antietam was determined, Great Britain COULD have thrown in with the South.  After 1 1/2 years of the war, the South was unable to free themselves and had little left in the way of usable resources.  Plainly, they had problems standing and providing for themselves.  Britain didn't go in when they saw this.

Possibly, would Gettysburg be so obsessively held to by some people because it was a fight which occurred IN and AROUND a town?

Vicksburg was much more important than Gettysburg.


Ok... so shoot me for mouthing such heresy!  I tells it as I sees it.:D
