It was just 100 miles from Washington D.C. to the Confederate capital at Richmond, Virginia, but the trip took many twists and turns and four long years. The Eastern Theater of the American Civil War ran from southern Pennsylvania to Virginia’s North Carolina border and from Chesapeake Bay to the mountains west of the Shenandoah Valley. It included the first big battle at Bull Run, the deadliest single day at Antietam, and the greatest battle of the war at Gettysburg.
There were other theaters and armies, and some of the most decisive blows of the war were elsewhere. But to many the heart and soul of the Civil War was the contest between the Union Army of the Potomac and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. Instructor: Randal Garrison
