The Battle of Gettysburg was full of pivotal moments. Explore the strategy and troop movements with this Story Map from ERSI and see what took place from the beginning of the battle on July 1, at 10:30 AM when the armies encountered each other at Gettysburg until July 3, at 5:00 PM, when the Confederate army was defeated.

We start when Gen. John Buford’s cavalry division, at Gettysburg since dawn, deployed northwest of town as Confederate troops approached from the northwest, down the Chambersburg Pike, and end as Confederate soldiers retreated back across the fields of wheat and rye, decimated by Federal artillery, their forces and courage spent. Meanwhile, a few miles to the east (off the map), J.E.B. Stuart’s cavalry had launched a simultaneous attack meant to draw Union forces away from Pickett’s Charge.
