“At the gatehouse of the town cemetery, a sign said, “All persons using firearms in these grounds will be prosecuted with the utmost rigor of the law.” This sign had been put up long before the war came to Gettysburg. The words were ignored by soldiers on both sides for the next three days.”
Jim O'Connor, What Was the Battle of Gettysburg?

“Gettysburg is still considered the most famous battle of the war. Why? At Gettysburg, the tide turned. Up until then, the South had been winning. After Gettysburg, the Confederates were no longer sure their army was unbeatable. And after two years of losing battles, the Northern forces gained pride and confidence. They believed the war was theirs to win. And they were right. Gettysburg was a prosperous market town of 2,400 people. A network of ten roads extended out from town like the spokes of a wheel. Until July 1863, Gettysburg was not well known like other cities in Pennsylvania such as Philadelphia or Harrisburg.”
