PICKETTS CHARGE

 

monument-1

From this point on July 3, 1863 the finial battle in Gettysburg was started.  Led by Gen. George Pickett towards the center of the Union Line.  Thousands of soldiers from the Army of Northern Virginia left this spot in hopes to win the Battle of Gettysburg.  They never made it.  Hundreds upon hundreds of Confederate troops were laying in the hallowed fields to the right either dead or dying.  The Union Army persisted and drove the Army of Northern Virginia back to where they came from.  General Robert E. Lee never again, came this far North in the Civil War.

Thanks for stopping by.
