What’s the significance of the Battle of Perryville?

The largest battle in Kentucky, Perryville was the “high water mark” for the Confederates in the Western Theater (the area between the Appalachian Mountains and the Mississippi River). Never again were the Western Confederates closer to winning the war. The battle kept Kentucky in Union hands for the remainder of the war, which helped contribute to the Northern victory.
