Brooks Simpson 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 commanders on both sides drew upon their previous military experiences at Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and other battles, and how their decisions were based on what they had learned during two years of war.

The talk, “Doesn’t This Look Familiar?: Relying Upon Experience at Gettysburg,” took place during an event commemorating 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, sponsored by Gettysburg National Military Park and the Gettysburg Foundation. close
