Civil War Battle

Each student will be responsible for writing a paper about a Civil War battle. Your paper should answer the following questions about your topic: What was the goal of each side in the battle? Why did the battle turn out the way that it did? What was the outcome and significance of the battle? The paper should be minimum 5 pages/ 1500 words

Your paper must be based on and appropriately cite (with footnotes or endnotes) the Civil Wars official records (the famous multivolume O.R.) You must draw on sources from both the Union and Confederate sides in your paper. Keep in mind that sources can contradict each other, and have to be evaluated carefully. You may use other sources above and beyond the O.R. as well, but be sure to cite them appropriately. The O.R. is accessible (and searchable) online at Cornells Making of America website:
