Gettysburg - Three Desperate Days Commemorative Coin Set
In the aftermath of Gettysburg, more than 50,000 men were reported killed, wounded, or missing, with both armies suffering more than 20,000 casualties. The Union had successfully rebuffed the Confederate invasion and their victory marked a critical turning point in the war; Robert E. Lee's image as an invincible leader was shattered, and the rebels were kept largely on the defensive for the remainder of the war.
When the fighting at the Battle of Gettysburg finally came to an end on the evening of July 3rd, 1863, an exhausted Union army had succeeded in preventing Robert E. Lee'sConfederate invasion of the North, but had suffered more than 20,000 casualties over the course of the three-day struggle. To honor the thousands of Union soldiers who tragically lost their lives during the bloody conflict, a total of seventeen acres of the battlefield were acquired by the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and dedicated as the Soldiers' National Cemetery.
On November 19, four months after the battle ended, President Lincoln attended a ceremony to consecrate the cemetery grounds. Although he spoke at the podium for less than three minutes, the Gettysburg Address would become one of the most famous--and most quoted--speeches in history, delivering a lasting tribute to the fallen soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the noble cause of defending their country. With just a few words, Lincoln stressed the broader significance of the war on America's future by reaffirming the country's commitment to the principles of freedom outlined in the Declaration of Independence: that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. The solemn brevity of Lincoln's speech, along with the hard-won victory at Gettysburg, cemented Lincoln's legacy as a respected leader and a powerful orator and reinvigorated the Northern soldiers, pushing them harder in their fight to defeat the Confederate armies.
