The Battle of Gettysburg: Jul 1-3 by Mike Ellicott

Turning Strategy into Action – Lee and Meade at Gettysburg

In mid-May 1863, shortly after his resounding victory at Chancellorsville, VA, Confederate General Robert E. Lee conceived a bold plan to invade the North and force a decisive battle to end the Civil War.  A chance encounter between Union Cavalry and Confederate Infantry on a ridge west of Gettysburg, PA on May 31 started the largest land battle in the Western Hemisphere - The Battle of Gettysburg.  After three days of heavy fighting on July 1, 2, and 3, and over 50,000 combined casualties, Lee retreated south back to Virginia.  Why was Lee in Virginia and what did he hope to accomplish?  How did brand new Union Commander General George Meade react to the invasion?  This presentation will discuss the National Strategies that lead to the Battle and the opposing Commanders’ Operations and Tactics that led to a Union Victory.
