American Civil War

Gettysburg Campaign titleFor Americans, the Gettysburg Campaign epitomizes the Civil War. For three oppressively hot days in 1863, now famous names (Lee, Pickett, Hancock, Chamberlain) fought over now famous landmarks (Cemetery Ridge, Devil’s Den, the wheatfield, the Round Tops) around the little crossroads town in southern Pennsylvania. It tipped the war’s momentum in favor of the Union and inspired President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address- one of the best-known speeches in American history. The Gettysburg Campaign, 1863 reanimates this largest battle of the Civil War.
