US Civil War Battles

Directions

Name the battles of the Civil War as identified and rated by the Civil War Sites Advisory Commission (CWSAC). Battles are rated on an A-D scale as follows:

Class A – Decisive: A general engagement involving field armies in which a commander achieved a vital strategic objective. Such a result might include an indisputable victory on the field or be limited to the success or termination of a campaign offensive. Decisive battles had a direct, observable impact on the direction, duration, conduct, or outcome of the war.
Class B – Major: An engagement of magnitude involving field armies or divisions of the armies in which a commander achieved an important strategic objective within the context of an ongoing campaign offensive. Major battles had a direct, observable impact on the direction, duration, conduct, or outcome of the campaign.
Class C – Formative: An engagement involving divisions or detachments of the field armies in which a commander accomplished a limited campaign objective of reconnaissance, disruption, defense, or occupation. Formative battles had an observable influence on the direction, duration, or conduct of the campaign.
Class D – Limited: An engagement, typically involving detachments of the field armies, in which a commander achieved a limited tactical objective of reconnaissance, defense, or occupation. Limited battles maintained contact between the combatants without observable influence on the direction of the campaign.

There’s a weird thing where it sometimes demands “first” and “second” and other times doesn’t – there’s literally no way for us to know which ones demand that and which don’t. Fort St Phillip is misspelled (with only one “l”), and the correct spelling doesn’t work. “Chattanooga” should obviously work for “Chattanooga campaign” (CWSAC Apparently called it “Third Battle of Chattanooga”)
