GETTYSBURG: DAY 1
6 MILES LONG
General Lee had cut across Maryland into Pennsylvania, his men forming a fishhook in position. All on Cemetery Ridge.
Day 2: Middle of the war, the yankees were settled on little round top. The confederates were being lead by General Ewell. For the union, there were difficulties in the commute and they arrived late. During the war, General Sickles moves men against General Meades orders which ends up leaving Longstreet vulnerable, defeating the confederates for the day, and the blame being pushed onto Longstreet.
I know right, It's so frustrating!!
What's taking them so long!?

Although it is hard to understand and believe all these devistating events took and place and so many people died, the fact that this war put a HUGE impact on the loss of slavery in the united states s quite amazing and teaches us that the treatment and unrighteousness towards any kind of person is not right. The battle of Gettysburg was a success for the North.
The Gettysburg address is a memorial ground for all the fallen union members to be acknowledged, President Lincoln gave a detailed speech at the Gettysburg battlefield cemetery.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.
