During the Battle of Gettysburg’s second day, Union commander George Meade called for reinforcements to beat back an assault his left flank, leaving only a single brigade to defend his right flank on Culp’s Hill. Author Dan Welch describes how that brigade under General George Sears Greene repulsed multiple Confederate attacks over the course of the evening of July 2, holding the Union right despite being outnumbered three-to-one. This talk was part of a symposium on “The War in the East” hosted by the “Emerging Civil War” blog. close
