Today In History: The Final Day Of The Battle Of Gettysburg

On the third day and final day of the battle, fighting resumed on Culp’s Hill, and cavalry raged to the east and south, but the main event was a dramatic infantry assault by 12,500 Confederates against the center of the Union line on Cemetery Ridge.
