Kent Masterson Brown spoke about the Battle of Gettysburg, which took place July 1-3, 1863, and is considered the bloodiest battle ever on U.S. soil. He talked about how and why the battle began west of Gettysburg on July 1, 1863, and he challenged the understanding that General John F. Reynolds began the battle west of Gettysburg so he could withdraw to the heights east of town.

The talk, “George Gordon Meade and the Gettysburg Campaign,” took place during an event commemorating 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, sponsored by Gettysburg National Military Park and the Gettysburg Foundation. close
