Robert E. Lee, the general for the Confederate army, marched to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in order to reassemble his army. This is when he ran into general Joseph Hooker, the general for the union army. This is how the Battle of Gettysburg began.
July 1st 1863, The Confederate army managed to push back the Union forces through the town of Gettysburg and into Cemetery Ridge.
July 2nd 1863, The Union line streched along the Devils Den, Orchard Trees, Wheat Fields, and the hills of Little Round Top. The Union lost all but Little Round Top.
July 3rd 1863, The Confederate soldiers walk up a hill feeling as if they already won (although they barely made a dent in the Unions defense). General Pickett organized Pickets charge, where they fired down on the Confederate forces, forcing them to retreat.
By the end of the battle the field was covered in dead, rotting corpses. There was no where to bury the massive Gettysburg stenched of death all throughout the town.
17 ares were dedicated to making a cemetery for all those who died. It was so important that Lincoln came to say a speech. This speech was remembered as the Gettysburg address.
