When one thinks of the American Civil War, the images of the Battle of Gettysburg comes to mind and it's little wonder. The Battle of Gettysburg was fought July 1–3, 1863, in and around the town of Gettysburg, PA, by Union and Confederate forces during the American Civil War.

The battle involved the largest number of casualties of the entire war and is often described as the war's turning point. Union Major General George Meade's Army of the Potomac defeated attacks by Confederate General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, ending Lee's attempt to invade the North.

The battle was marked by fierce fighting all three days, questionable leadership on the part of the south, and the first time the union had won a major devastating battle that would turn the fortunes of war.

On the Final day of the Battle of Gettysburg General Robert E. Lee concentrated his full strength against Major General George G. Meade’s Army of the Potomac to break the middle of the Union line. This attack on the middle became known as “Pickett’s Charge.”

The charge involved an infantry assault of approximately 12,500 Confederate soldiers against Union troops' positioned along Cemetery Ridge, manned by some 6,500 Federals. The assault would take the nine brigades of Confederate soldiers over three-quarter mile of open ground susceptible to cannon fire the entire time.

It turned out to be a "slaughter" for the Union since the confederates had to March over an open field with no cover against withering cannon and musket fire.
