Which of these was NOT a Civil War battle?

Battle of the Bulge

Answer: The Civil War consisted of nearly 50 major battles and about 100 others that had major significance including the Battle of Gettysburg, the Battle of Shiloh, and the First Battle of Bull Run. However, the Battle of the Bulge was the largest and bloodiest battle fought by the U.S. during World War II. It involved 610,000 Americans, 55,000 British, and 72,000 Free French, fighting along Europe’s Western Front for nearly 40 days. There were 89,000 American casualties and over 100,000 German casualties.

The Battle of the Bulge (16 December 1944 – 25 January 1945) was the last major German offensive campaign of World War II. It was launched through the densely forested Ardennes region of Wallonia in Belgium, France, and Luxembourg, on the Western Front, towards the end of World War II, in the European theatre.
