Battle of Gettysburg Continued

The Battle of Gettysburg continued. Confederate General Robert E. Lee attempted two flanking movements, the first on the left led by native Georgian James Longstreet, at places called the Peach Orchard, Wheatfield, Devil’s Den, and the Round Tops. The second was on the right, led by Richard Ewell. Heavy casualties were inflicted on both sides, but at the end of the day the Union still held the high ground.
