About this title


Excerpt from Tactics at Gettysburg as Described by Participants in the Battle

"I think I can throw Gen. Hooker's army across the Potomac and draw troops from the South, embarrassing their plan of campaign in a measure, if I can do nothing more and have to return," wrote Gen. Robert E. Lee to President Davis, of the Southern Confederacy, June 25, 1863, describing in a single sentence the purpose of the Pennsylvania invasion that ended with the battle of Gettysburg. In his report of the Gettysburg campaign dated January, 1864, Gen. Lee thus referred to his expectations:

"If unable to attain the valuable results which might be expected to follow a brief advantage gained over the enemy in Maryland or Pennsylvania, it was hoped that we should at least so far disturb his plan for the summer campaign as to prevent its execution during the season of active operations."

Col. A. L. Long, Gen. Lee's military biographer, says in his Memoirs of Gen.
