The American Civil War (1861–1865) took more American lives than any otherwar in history combined. It so divided the people of the U.S. that in some familiesbrother fought against brother. The Civil War was between the Southern States, the“Confederacy” led by President Jefferson Davis trying to preserve slavery, and theNorthern States, the “Union” led by President Abraham Lincoln, dedicated to end-ing slavery.The Civil War is also known as the War Between the States and the War of Secession. It started on April 12, 1861, when Southern troops fired on Fort Sumter,a U.S. military fort on the coast of Charleston, SC. The war ended four years later.On April 9, 1865, Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his ragged armyto Union General Ulysees S. Grant at Appomattox Court House. The otherConfederate armies gave up soon after.The War Between the States held several firsts in history. It was the first war to becompletely and immediately reported in the press to the people back home.Civilians in the North were especially well informed of the war’s progress. Northernnewspapers sent their best correspondents into the field and received their reportsby telegraph. Civil War Soldiers were the first to use repeating arms, which couldfire several shots without reloading. It also introduced observation balloons, iron-clad ships, mines, submarines, and railroads into warfare.Some Civil War figures are among the nation’s most beloved heroes. Lincoln in par-ticular became a respected figure throughout the world. Here are several otherimportant individuals that became famous in the Civil War.
William Tecumseh Sherman
accepted a commission as a colonel inthe 13th U.S. Infantry regiment on May 14, 1861. He was one of the few Union officers to distinguish himself at the First Battle of Bull Run on July 21, where he was grazed by bullets in the kneeand shoulder. The disastrous Union defeat led Sherman to ques-tion his own judgment as an officer, but President AbrahamLincoln promoted him to brigadier general of volunteers (effec-tive May 17, which gave him more senior rank than that of Ulysses S. Grant, his future commander). He was assigned to com-mand the Department of the Cumberland in Louisville, Kentucky.Sherman became increasingly pessimistic about the outlook of thewar and repeatedly made estimates of the strength of the rebel forcesthat proved exaggerated, causing the local press to describe him as "crazy." In the fallof 1861, Sherman experienced what would probably be described today as a nervousbreakdown. He was put on leave and returned to Ohio to recuperate. Sherman quickly
