              1st Battle of Bull Run
• What I found interesting about it is that you can visualize
  the actual battle in this picture.
• This was in my top 3 because it showed what type of fields
  that battles took place in
• This was important because it was the 1st battle of the war,
  and its where Gen. Jackson got his nickname
Battle of Antietam
      • What amazed me was that this
        is less than 1% of how many
        people died that day (I did the math)
      • I thought since this battle was
        nicknamed after the deaths, I’d
        put a photo of a few deaths
      • Both sides lost many men,
        which caused us the Bloodiest
        Day in America
           Appomattox Courthouse
• The fact that there were so
  many guards interested me
• Because any treaty that ends
  the war is very important
• It was one of the civil war’s
  biggest moments, which
  ended the war with Robert E.
  Lee’s surrender
     Solving a Civil War Photo
              Mystery
• I think that the picture is a fake
• His head does look like it was cut off and
  pasted on the body of Gen. McCook
• If you compare McCooks’ photo with
  Grant’s without the head they are identical
• So I think this picture was one of the first
  photo shopped
