The answer to what event was the turning point of the Civil War is highly disputed amongst Civil War historians. Some say the Battle of Antietam, which occurred in Maryland, was one of the major Union victories in the Civil War. It also was the first time that the Confederacy tried to invade the north. This battle resulted in the Confederacy losing a possible alliance with France that it had sought heavily after. Another possible turning point could be the death of General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson at the battle of Chancellorsville, arguably one of the most important generals in the Confederacy. One of the most well held turning point believed by many was the Battle of Gettysburg. Following this, the Confederacy began losing a long series of battles. Another possible turning point is the promotion of General Grant following the Battle of Chattanooga and the ensuing "March to the Sea" by General Sherman. Either way, with the number of battles, events, and sheer amount of casualties this question is still disputed. The most agreed upon answer, as stated above, is the Battle of Gettysburg.
These are the battles though. You can also say the issuing of the Emancipation Proclamation is the political turning point of the Civil War, which soon helped out with Lincoln's reelection in 1864. The Proclamation also made it possible for African Americans to join the Union Army.
