  1. The Battle of Gettysburg was, perhaps, the most significant battle of the Civil War, but it did not end the war. Both the Union victors and the defeated Confederates suffered grave losses, but the most significant outcome of the battle was the withdrawal of the Confederacy from Northern territory. The Civil War continued for another two years after the Battle of Gettysburg.
