        Images from Virginia, Maryland, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Georgia | Ken Burns: The Civil War

        View images from the locations of famous Civil War battles, such as First Battle of Bull Run in 1861, near Manassas Junction, Virginia, and siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi, in 1863. The first and second battles of Bull Run, in 1861 and 1862, were Confederate victories and a blow to the Union Army’s confidence. The Union victory at Vicksburg, a Confederate stronghold on the Mississippi River, would divide and weaken the Confederacy. The Civil War was fought in 10,000 locations across the United States.
