It was already hot at 8:00 in the morning on July 1, 1863, when two Confederate brigades under the command of General Henry Heth marched wearily North into the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, insearch of food and badly needed supplies. Two Union cavalry brigades commanded by General John Buford were already ensconced in the small village. The skirmish that ensued lasted little more than anhour, but as reinforcements from both armies poured into the surrounding countryside, the stage was set for the largest, fiercest battle of the American Civil War.
Over the next three days,more than 170,000 Americans fought face-to-face for every inch of high ground. By the end of the battle on July 4th, 1863, the bodies of over 51,000 Union and Confederate soldiers were strewn over thelandscape. Each side had suffered terrible losses, but it was the Union army under the command of General George G. Meade that triumphed. The Confederate army, led by General Robert E. Lee, never fully recovered from the defeat at Gettysburg. Three of the bloodiest days in American history had turned the tide of the entire war.
