  • The first day happened on July 1, 1863. General Lee cut across Maryland and camped around the small town of Gettysburg. Little did he know the enemy was very close by. General Lee was lacking enemy information and when Lees troops ran into the Union General, it started the war of Gettysburg.

  • July 2, 1863 Robert E. Lee, Southern General,  ordered Lieutenant General James Longstreet to attack and roll up the Federal left flank. But the one place that everyone wanted was a hill by the name of Little Round top. It was the smallest hill and gave you a big advantage.
  • Go attack the Federal left flank!
  • Lieutenant General James Longstreet 
  • July 3,1863  George Pickett was a United States war officer and defended the South. Pickett's Charge was an infantry assault ordered by Confederate Gen. This happened on the last day of the war, but the North still won. The South then concluded that they would never launch another attack again in the North.

  • This last battle was where General Lee lost and was forced by the North to leave and they never recovered from this Union Victory. The Gettysburg Battle was significant because it was where America became its new self and where all battles ended.
  • Confederates move out!

  • President Lincoln wrote the Gettysburg Address to honor those men who fought in the battles. Part of the Gettysburg battle field was dedicated to the men that fought there. This was their resting place and where they would be remembered forever.
  • I would like to dedicate this to the men who fought here.
