My curiosity about the history of American civil war, made me read about its history. Because my obsession made me dream of being in this American civil war zone, which had swallowed 51,000 lives. This also makes me curious why I can dream, so I look for the meaning of “War Zone” and the result is that dreaming of a war zone might reflect some kind of conflict in your life. This might be with other people, or it could be a struggle with yourself.

Oh, back to the story of this article which will discuss the Brutal Side of the US Civil War that Swallowed the Victims of 51,000 Souls and 3,000 Ponytails.
The battle in US Gettysburg which flared around the Civil War was the biggest battle of the cavalry with the largest number of victims, better known as the Battle of Gettysburg and held on 1-3 July 1863,
The brutal war known as the Battle of Gettysburg and was held on July 1-3, 1863 between Union (North) and Confederate (South) forces was opened when General Robert E Lee, leader of the South forces successfully controlled the strategic city, Gettysburg.
From that strategic position, General Lee began to assemble power to attack the area which was still controlled by the North. The next target was to launch a psychological attack by blocking the center of the Union government in Washington. The maneuver of the Confederate forces really threatened the defense of the Union forces.
Union President, Abraham Linclon, who realized the danger then told General Ambrose Burnside (commander of the Army of the Potomac / Union) to repel General Lee’s troops. So, even the battle was desperate. Just to look back, this Battle of Your Brotherhood took place after the North agreed to stop slavery while the South wanted to perpetuate it.
General Burnside, who led 100,000 soldiers, then launched a frontal attack on Confederate forces who were building defenses on the hill and were on the other side of the Rappahannock river. After being based in the city of Frederickburg and working on consolidation, General Burnside began an attack on the position of the Confederate forces. A fierce battle also took place immediately. The frontal Union attack with the Ponton bridge construction technique failed.
After about 11 days of fighting and not experiencing the slightest civilization, after all the Pontoon Bridge erected under intense enemy fire was not built, General Burnside finally retreated unique. The loss felt by Burnside’s troops was quite large. 15 thousand Union soldiers were killed and injured. The failure of General Burnside to create Union military officials disappointed and they asked President Linclon to replace Burnside.
The Army of the Potomac commando was transferred to Major General Joseph Hooker, who was felt to be less intelligent and heavily drunk. Hooker’s forces consisted of seven infantry corps, one riding cavalry corps, and a backup artillery.
As many as 120 thousand Union soldiers who have dropped their combat motivation but have better weapons and logistics are also preparing to go home to battle. Meanwhile General Lee, who has a total of 60,000 troops but has the spirit and higher combat skills, is already preparing for his powerful fortress in Fredericksburg.
But the two troops who were ready to fight for the sake of delaying the war had landed a heavy rainy season which gave rise to thick mud. After the rainy season subsided, General Hooker began launching his invasion. But this time Hooker was reluctant to repeat the frontal attack that Burnside had carried out.
The combat strategy applied by General Hooker was to divide his forces. Some launched a soaring attack and some remained in their initial position, Fredericksburg.
At the end of April 1863, Hooker moved 75 thousand troops to soar along the banks of the river Rappahannock and then quietly crossed the area of United States Ford. The movement of Hooker’s troops then stepped on the thick forests of Virginia Wilderness and began building camp.
While as many as 47,000 Hooker’s troops remained in Fredericksburg and continued to prepare to attack Confederate forces. After carrying out this tiring movement, on April 30 Hooker also rested his troops for a while while in a jungle suburb of Wilderness, Chancellorsville.
Hooker’s staff actually hoped the Union forces would move on while carrying out consolidation so that they could launch a massive surprise attack from the rear towards the Confederate forces.
