 The Battle of Gettysburg
The Union Army of the Potomac and Confederate Army of Northern Virginia battled in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania from July 1-3, 1863. When the fighting ended, over 50,000 Americans had become casualties (killed, wounded, captured, or missing) in the Civil War's bloodiest battle. Why did Robert E. Lee invade the North? How did the Union win the battle? Why is Gettysburg called the "High Tide of the Confederacy"? Learn all of this and more in this encore presentation of a program originally presented in 2013.
