Mike Windsor, you're right. Completely fabricated. Fake news!

I will also make up Chalgrove Field and the First Battle of Nantwich to round out my five.

Champion Hill – Union victory here sealed fate of Vicksburg

Shiloh – set Grant on his road to Appomattox Court House

Chancellorsville – in my opinion the "real" high water mark for the Confederacy

Chickamauga – shoulda, coulda, woulda for the Confederacy

Nashville – end of the Army of Tennessee
