Howard Coffin 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 Union General George Stannard’s Vermont Brigade, who were untested in combat and had reached Gettysburg with their nine month enlistments nearly expired, yet launched the flank attack that put an end to Pickett’s Charge.

A signal loss of approximately 13 minutes occurred during the middle of the program. 

The talk, “The Vermont Assault on Pickett’s Charge,” took place during an event commemorating 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, sponsored by Gettysburg National Military Park and the Gettysburg Foundation. close
