Danner's Pocket Guide Book of the Battle-Field of Gettysburg, and History of the Battle free pdf Excerpt from Danner's Pocket Guide Book of the Battle-Field of Gettysburg, and History of the Battle In June, 1803- the army of Northern Virginia, divided into three corps under Longstreet, Ewell, and A. P. Hill, commanded by General Lee. crossed the Potomac at Williamsport and Shepherdstown and marched into Pennsylvania- a part going as far as Carlisle, the remainder halting at Chambersburg. The Union army, under General Hooker, had in the meantime crossed the river at Edwards Ferry and headed towards Frederick City, Md. On June 27th, Hooker having been refused the use of some ten thousand men they not needed m Harper's Ferry, tended his resignation, which was accepted - General Meade succeeding to the command. On the morning of July 1st, Hill, whose corps was in the advance six miles from Gettysburg, learned that Gettysburg was occupied by a Union force. Sending back to urge Longstreet to hasten his March, he moved on. In the meanwhile, Reynolds, who was in command of that portion of the Union army, had sent out a cavalry reconnaissance, and the forces Came into collision about two miles north-west of Gettysburg. Reynolds sent infantry to the support of his cavalry, and the action opened. He was killed in the opening of the action. At first the Union forces were superior, and they gained decided advantages- but in a few hours nearly the whole of Hill's corps came up from Chambersburg, and Ewell's from Carlisle, both numbering about 50,000, while their opponents were less than half as many. The Union forces were driven back through Gettysburg. Until the town was reached the retirement was comparatively deliberate and orderly- but when arrived there, being huddled in the narrow streets subjected to a rapid fire from batteries which raked them, and the enemy's swarming infantry intent on their destruction or capture, the men fell Into confusion. Their officers strove to save them by ordering them Into the cross alleys. But this only- added to the confusion, the men either not understanding the commands, or hoping to escape the fire of the foe, and over 1,200 were made prisoners in less than twenty minutes.
