A number of US Civil War battles were fought on Northern soil. The most significant ones were Gettysburg (Pennsylvania, 1863), South Mountain and Antietam (Maryland, 1862), Perryville (Kentucky, 1862), Wilson's Creek (Missouri, 1861), Buffington Island (Ohio, 1863), Monocacy Junction (Maryland, 1864), Fort Stevens (Washington, DC, 1864) and Falling Waters (Maryland, 1863). Gettysburg and Antietam ended Robert E. Lee's two invasions of the North (South Mountain was fought a few days before Antietam). Perryville ended Braxton Bragg's invasion of Kentucky. Wilson's Creek did much to save Missouri for the Union. Buffington Island put an end to John Hunt Morgan's Ohio Raid. Federals under Lew Wallace (who later wrote the epic novel "Ben Hur") slowed Jubal Early's Confederates who were on their way to Washington. Fort Stevens was a minor battle but it ended Early's invasion of the North. Falling Waters took place during Lee's retreat from Gettysburg.

No major battles were fought in New Hampshire during the Revolutionary War. However, three battles are particularly important to New Hampshire. First, in 1774, before the Revolution began, Paul Revere rode to Portsmouth, N. H., and warned the people that the British would soon reinforce Fort William and Mary. New Hampshire patriots raided the fort and captured its cannon and 5 tons of gunpowder. The Battle of Bunker Hill in Massachusetts involved New Hampshire militias. A few years later, at Bennington, Vermont, New Hampshire militias fought and defeated British and Hessian forces. This was the first major defeat for the hated Hessian mercenaries. So, while no major battles were actually fought in New Hampshire from 1776 to 1783, New Hampshire militias had a very important role in the Revolutionary War.
