    Depending on who you talk to... None of the Above.

    (In your list it would be Gettysburg... but as a plaque on the battlefield will tell you, it was the "High Water Mark of the Rebellion." Meaning the most northern part that the armies fought.)

    Some believe that the Emancipation Proclamation was the turning point because it kept European countries out of the war and changed the scope of the fighting for many.

    Some believe that the First Maryland invasion by Lee in 1862 was the turning point when the rebels failed to "win" at Antietam. It was the first stalemate or defeat for the Confederate Army in the war.

    It is hard to get a consensus on where the turning point occurred.

    g-day!

    It was actually the loss of the Western Campaign due to the incompetence of the Southern generals in charge of the Mississippi Valley, along with the general inability of Jefferson Davis to lead effectively.

    Why in the hell did they put Bunker Hill in there? That's just ridiculous.

    Try visiting Gettysburg sometime. Do your homework first and walk the fields. See the lay of the land and where the battles were fought each day.

    Gettysburg, in particular when Picketts charge was repulsed by Union forces.

    Gettysburg. And don't worry about doing your homework...you are completely right in thinking that you will never need to know this stuff. Unless, of course, you want to help others out on YA!
