The Battle of Gettysburg took place on July 1, 1863, in Gettysburg Pennsylvania. This battle was very major.Why? Because many people lost their lives in this Civil War, because the South didnít want to be part of America. The South wanted slavery and The North didnít want slavery. The North didnít believe people should be slaves because of the color of their skin. The war was about land and slavery. The northern people did not want slavery and the southern people did because they made slaves do all their work. Slaves belonged to their owners in the same way that horses and cows did. By 1860 there were almost four million slaves living in the south. The Civil war began in 1861 and ended in 1865. The north won the war . I learned a lot about the war and slaves in this book.
