•On the Field of Battle•
The Battle of Gettysburg is considered to be the beginning of the end of the Confederacy. General Robert E. Lee's incursion into Maryland and Pennsylvania (with a planned turn toward Baltimore or Washington) was designed to frighten the North and force the Union into negotiations to end the Civil War. From July 1st through 3rd a fierce battle raged in the hills and valleys surrounding this small village. Ironically, on the afternoon of July 4th, 1863, Lee's Army of Northern Virginia began its hasty retreat back to the relative safety of Virginia.
More than 51,000 were killed or wounded during those three hellish days. Lee's exhausted and depleted forces never fully recovered from Gettysburg, even though they continued to fight for almost two more years.
This map was created by one of the finest lithographers of the 19th century, Juliue Bien, for the Congressionally mandated "Official Records of the Union & Confederate Armies" (originals of this map are becoming very difficult to acquire). It was taken from a detailed horseback sketches done by Sgt. E.B. Cope for general G.K. Warren, Chief Engineer of the Army of the Potomac. The detail is extraordinary, with individual homes and their owners noted. Both Union and Confederate lines and positions are shown.
