On July 2, General Lee planned to complete the destruction of the Army of the Potomac. Longstreet was to crush the Union left flank. Longstreet doubted the wisdom of Lee's plan, but slowly moved his forces into position. The ensuing combat occurred across some of the most hollowed ground in American history: the Wheat Field, the Peach Orchard, Devil's Den and Little Round Top. Following Longstreet's failure, II Corps assaulted the Federal right on Cemetery Hill. Two brigades reached the summit. Only the dead stayed there.
