 American Civil War   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The American Civil War was fought in the United States from 1861 until 1865 between the United States – forces coming mostly from the 23 northern states of the Union – and the newly-formed Confederate States of America, which consisted of 11 southern states that had declared their secession.
Sheridan proved to be more than a match for Early, and defeated him in a series of battles, decisively at Cedar Creek, and proceeded to destroy the agricultural and industrial base of the Valley, similar to the scorched-earth tactics Sherman would employ in Georgia.
One of the reasons that the US Civil War wore on as long as it did and the battles were so fierce was that leaders on both sides had formerly served in the United States Armed Forces together, many, including Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee, during the Mexican-American War between 1846 and 1848.

 III. THE FIRST FIGHTS...
In these letters from January 13 to February 15, 1863, Andrew Jackson creates powerful images of his first battles, and what was a Federal defeat at Chickasaw Bayou/Bluffs and a Federal victory at the Battle of Fort Hindman or Arkansas Post.
During the Battle, the Federals lose 134 men, suffer 898 wounded, and 29 missing, while the Confederates tally 28 killed, 81 wounded, and 4,270 prisoners taken.
An observation from this group of letters is the emotional stress that Andrew Jackson appears to be suffering, perhaps as a result of depression, and the scenes that he has witnessed.
