Gettysburg Today


Our Thesis:

The Battle of Gettysburg was a... 
1. Revolution because it introduced a new fighting style to the Confederate Army.
2. Reaction because it created a new battle strategy for the Union Army.
3. Reform because it brought a newfound winning streak to the Union Army which resulted in the North winning the Civil War.

The Civil War was one of the most important moments of American history.  
  • American citizens fought each other for the right to govern the country in the way they thought it should be. 
  • At stake was the rights of slaves and unification of the country.  
  • A victory by the Confederate Army would have led to secession of the South.  
  • A victory by the Union Army would ensure a single country.
