What do you think is the most significant American Civil War battle and why?
I suspect that most will say Gettysburg, but if you have solid understanding of the Civil War tell my why you would choose Gettysburg over Antietam? Shiloh? Vicksburg?
The Battle of Gettysburg is the most significant battle in the Civil War. It was at this point in war when the tide of war changed for the the Union. The Confederates did not win another significant battle after their loss at Gettysburg. Also this was the last serious threat to Washington, D.C. The Union had protected the back entrance to the capital.
Vicksburg, Nashville, Mobile Bay, Petersburg, and Fort Donelson were the most significant battles. Gettysburg was a tactical and psychological victory for the north, but had no strategic significance. Any military professional would agree with that.
