The union and the confederacy are face to face on this warm September day. the confedercay were marching foward to get supplies for the virgin farmers when the union who had found Lee's plan wraped around some old cigiar boxes and came to stop them with 60 thosand soilders almost double of the confederacy soliders the fist shots have been fired they have been perpearing for this for almost two days and neither of them want to lose. one of the comanding officers have said These men are going to stay here till the sun goes down or the victory is won," and i have no dought in my mind that any of that is false.
