The Battle of Ball’s Bluff on October 21, 1861, started as a rather typical amphibious crossing of the Potomac River by the Union Army into Virginia to attack the Confederates. Unfortunately, the Union soldiers had to traverse the river in several boats making numerous trips, and when the battle turned them around, they had no boats to take them back. Many died on the beaches or were shot in the water.
