The first real confrontation of the American Civil War kicks off near the town of Manassas, and only a stone’s throw from Washington D.C. It’s the battle of Bull Run.
Arlington Cemetery will become our nation’s most hallowed ground…but first, it will be the most strategic ground to protect Washington D.C. And, as an unintended FU to the future general of the confederacy, it’s on Robert E. Lee’s family land.
The Civil War revolutionized how battles were fought. From guns and bullets to the telegraph and railroads…America is the leader in technology, but these weapons of war prove especially devastating when Americans use them against each other.
As Abraham Lincoln is inaugurated as the 16th President of America…states have already begun to secede and join the confederacy. The Civil War has begun.
