Battle Of Gettysburg

The Battle of Gettysburg was fought over three days, July 1st to 3rd, 1863, as part of the American Civil War. The Union Army of the Potomac, commanded by George G. Meade, defeated the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, commanded by Robert E. Lee. Over 46,000 soldiers were killed, wounded, or captured. Many historians consider the battle of Gettysburg the turning point of the war.

Bibliographers estimate that perhaps over 30,000 books have been written about the Battle of Gettysburg or the Gettysburg campaign.
