Nat Turner’s slave rebellion,
The 1850 Compromise,
With all things going on,
The war was no surprise.
Uncle Tom’s Cabin,
The Kansas-Nebraska Act,
Bleeding Kansas happens,
This is a true fact.

Scott sues for freedom,
Lincoln and Douglas debate,
Brown raids a ferry,
The war, it still awaits.

Lincoln is president,
South Carolina secedes,
The Civil War awaiting,
Finally succeeds.

First a battle at Fort Sumter,
Then the battle at Bull Run,
And the south won,
The battle has just begun.

Shiloh, Antietam,
Yanks win,
But at Fredricksburg,
The South Wins again.

Lincoln delivers,
The Emancipation Proclamation,
We are trying,
To fight for slavery cancellation.

Vicksburg, Gettysburg,
Turning points in war,
Sherman burns down plantations,
We took quite a score.

Lincoln wins re-election,
Charity for all,
Too bad the price was,
For lots of us to fall.

Appomattox Courthouse,
Lee surrenders,
Yanks win!
And rejoice with our tired defenders.

John Wilkes Booth,
Has Lincoln assassinated,
The south was,
Quite fascinated.

The Civil War is over,
Over six hundred thousand lost,
The price was over $20 billion,
But no slavery was the cost.

Yankse won the Civil War,
Some rejoice even more,
But the blood and tears shed,
Will be in dreams forever more.

War Means Fighting And Fighting Means Killing - N. B. Forrest When war does come, my advice is to draw the sword and throw away the scabbard." Stonewall Jackson
