News Display: Battle of Gettysburg Ends

On July 3, 1863 the most pivotal battle of the American Civil War concluded after three bitter days in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. General Robert E. Lee had organized "Pickett's Charge" which deployed less than 15,000 troops to attack Union forces. With more than 7,000 confederates killed or wounded within an hour, Lee was forced to withdraw. The Battle of Gettysburg would claim nearly 50,000 casualties, the largest battle of the Civil War.

President Lincoln's delivered his famous speech, The Gettysburg Address, at the dedication on November 19, 1863 of the national cemetery where the battle occurred.
