Line of Fire_Vol.2_5of13 - The Battle of Gettysburg -
The battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the American Civil War; at the end of three days of ferocious fighting, all hopes of overall victory for the Confederacy had disappeared. But the Union triumph came at a terrible price, for their losses all but matched those of the Confederates. Names such as The Peach Orchard, Little Round Top and Cemetary Ridge wrote themselves large in American folklore... the dreadful bloodshed of the 1st to 3rd of July 1863 has never been forgotten.
