Independence has it Price




Revolutionary War of 1776
   
"It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.
   


War of 1812
Lundy's Lane, Niagara Falls, Ontario
   
"Unlike New Orleans, which resulted in a large number of casualties for the British and a very small number for the Americans, Lundy's Lane (1814 battle) produced large numbers of casualties on both sides. Casualty figures for the British and Canadians were 84 killed, 559 wounded, 193 missing and 42 taken prisoner, for a total of 878 casualties of all kinds. Casualty figures for the Americans stood at 173 killed, 571 wounded and 117 missing, for a total of 860 casualties of all kinds. Both sides claimed victory, however; the battle effectively ended America's attempt to invade Canada. The battle lasted for nine hours or more, with a great deal of the fighting done in the darkness of night. The US 22nd Infantry Regiment suffered 143 casualties, of which 37 were killed.

1863 Civil War -- Gettysburg
   
Gen. Robert E. Lee concentrated his full strength against Maj. Gen. George G. Meade's Army of the Potomac at the crossroads county seat of Gettysburg. During July 1st to 3rd battle raged in and around Gettysburg as 158,300 soldiers (US 83,289; CS 75,054) waged war. Estimated Casualties were 51,000 total (US 23,000; CS 28,000). On July 4, Lee began withdrawing his army toward Williamsport on the Potomac River. His train of wounded stretched more than fourteen miles. Some historians suggest that Gettysburg was the turning point for the South in losing the war.
   

1862 Civil War
Shiloh Battlefield, Shiloh, TN
   
The first major battle in the Western theater of the Civil War. The two-day battle, April 6 and 7, 1862, involved about 65,000 Union and 44,000 Confederate troops. This battle resulted in nearly 24,000 killed, wounded, and missing. It proved to be a decisive victory for the federal forces when they advanced on and seized control of the Confederate railway system at Corinth, Mississippi. The park is located in Hardin County, on the west bank of the Tennessee River, and about nine miles south of Savannah, Tennessee.
