Gettysburg Color Battle Map of 1-3 July
The Battle of Gettysburg, the most consequential battle of the Civil War, was fought from 1-3 July 1863 outside the town of Gettysburg, in southern Pennsylvania. The Army of Northern Virginia led by Robert E. Lee, Longstreet, and Stuart with roughly 75,000 men were making their second attempt in invading the North (Maryland Campaign of 1862). The Army of the Potomac was 100,000 strong and was led by Meade, who was recently installed as commander after President Lincoln fired Hooker three days prior to the battle commencing. The outcome of the battle was still in doubt on 3 July, considered the “High Water Mark of the Confederacy” as the closest the South ever got to winning the war. The Battle of Gettysburg, with an estimated 45,000-51,000 casualties, is the bloodiest battle in American history.
Great color map of all three days of the battle. This map is from the Union perspective as Confederate units are referred to as “Rebel” units. Unique to this map is the unit’s positions are labeled by the day of the week (Wednesday, Thursday, etc…) instead of the date (1, 2, or 3 July). Locations of where high rankings officers were killed are annotated.
