Battles and Turning Points of the Civil War

I gave a presentation on the major turning points in the Civil War at Butler Community College in Marion, Kansas.  In my research I found that the Union victory at Fort Donelson is considered by many to be the earliest battle that turned the war in favor of the North.  Since Hiram's Honor takes such a wide swath through the Civil War, I was able to make many of the major battles more personal by telling where my ancestor was in these pivotal engagements.
