List of Civil War Battles

A list of Civil War battles is a hard thing to compile...

There were thousands of small and fairly inconsequential skirmishes, and it becomes difficult to find them all. What we have here is not a full list of Civil War battles, but it is a beginning.

This list includes more than 370 battles at this point, and should continue to grow. 

The battle entries are formatted as follows: Name of Battle. - Day or days on which the battle was fought. - State in which the battle took place. - Result of the battle. - Any additional notes.

The entries are in chronological order, with separate headers for each year of the war, and the months are separated by a divider (~~~~~~~~~~). Entries are arranged by the ending date of the battle.

Throughout this list of Civil War battles you will find links to battles we have written stories about, as well as other interesting stories that may pertain to a battle. We have included some brief notes of interest about some of the entries on the list.
