Abstract:

A very bloody affair: The war to preserve the Union becomes a war to free the slaves, and political fights become as fierce as those on the battlefield. New weapons and strategies emerge, as ironclad ships do battle and Ulysses S. Grant wins at Shiloh. With unprecedented ferocity, the age of modern warfare takes hold.

Forever free: Dark clouds of defeat hover over the Union Army as President Lincoln prepares the landmark Emancipation Proclamation to free the slaves. While Lincoln waits for a victorious moment for this announcement, Union troops lose repeatedly. Finally with a victory at Antietam Creek, the bloodiest day of the war gives way to the dawn of emancipation.
