Union Flag Carrier LEVEL THREE
CIVIL WAR QUIZ #2
Confederate Flag Carrier




1 - Confederate President Jefferson Davis was not in his office when he received a dispatch from Robert E. Lee warning that Richmond must be evacuated. Where was he at?

Answer:


2 - "Johnson had done very well. His battle plan had been well-conceived and bold, he had taken Sherman by surprise, and he had contrived to isolate, at least for a day, one wing of the Federal army. Futhermore, his outnumbered and much-defeated soldiers had fought with great valor --- as had their Federal counterparts --- and unexpected, even extraordinary discipline. All that brave men could do, they did. If Hardee had arrived on time; if McLaws had not been diverted unnecessarily to the assistance of Hoke; and if Morgan had not fortified his position south of the Goldsboro road beyond the requirements of immediate necessity, the result might have been different. "

What Battle is being described?
