A Short Story of the First Day's Fight at Gettysburg free pdf Excerpt from A Short Story of the First Day's Fight at Gettysburg On June 28, 1863, the Army of the Potomac, which had been molded, by the skill of Hooker, into as fine a fighting machine of its size as the world has ever seen, was turned over, in Maryland, to General Meade. Its duty at that juncture, was to force Lee, with his large and confident army, to turn back from Pennsylvania, which he had reached through the Shenandoah and the Cumberland Valleys, in the round-about way he had chosen for his attack upon Philadelphia, and then upon Baltimore and Washington. Hooker had spread his army out in the shape of a fan when he moved it from Virginia into Maryland, but the disposition of the seven corps was such that rapid concentration upon a central point would be possible, besides protection from inroads by the enemy. It had been Hooker's plan to interrupt Lee's communications by striking with force up the Potomac, and, for this purpose, Slocum had gone to Knoxville, Md., with his 12th Corps, which was to have been reinforced by French and his 12,000 men at Harper's Ferry. General Halleck would not, however, allow this, and Hooker was relieved, at his own request, on June 28th, and the 12th Corps was moved to Taneytown. With this attack upon the communications in view, the passes of South Mountain had to be guarded, and so Major-General John F. Reynolds, of the 1st Corps, was given the 1st, the 3rd and the 11th Corps and two brigades of Buford's division of cavalry to command, which force became known as the Left Wing, and Major-General Doubleday, of the 3rd Division, took command of the 1st Corps. The Left Wing was moved northward close along the east side of South Mountain, while the 2nd, 5th and 6th Corps (to be joined later by the 12th) bore off to the right, more in the direction of Harrisburg and Philadelphia. When Meade assumed command of the Army of the Potomac, he was fortunate in finding Reynolds thus in charge of the troops nearest the enemy, and where his great ability would likely be of the utmost assistance at an early moment.
