The Battle of Gettysburg **Sign-Up Thread Closed**

Postby thehockeyguru on Wed Aug 17, 2011 7:39 pm

On June 30, while part of A.P. Hill’s Corps was in Cashtown, one of Hill's brigades, North Carolinians under Brig. Gen. J. Johnston Pettigrew, ventured toward Gettysburg. In his memoirs, Maj. Gen. Henry Heth, Pettigrew's division commander, claimed that he sent Pettigrew to search for supplies in town—especially shoes.

When Pettigrew's troops approached Gettysburg on June 30, they noticed Union cavalry under Brig. Gen. John Buford arriving south of town, and Pettigrew returned to Cashtown without engaging them. When Pettigrew told Hill and Heth what he had seen, neither general believed that there was a substantial Federal force in or near the town, suspecting that it had been only Pennsylvania militia. Despite General Lee's order to avoid a general engagement until his entire army was concentrated, Hill decided to mount a significant reconnaissance in force the following morning to determine the size and strength of the enemy force in his front. Around 5 a.m. on Wednesday, July 1, two brigades of Heth's division advanced to Gettysburg.

I'll be the Forward Air Controller calling in airstrikes.

Deputy Dawg one-two, Deputy Dawg one-two, this is Chilly Willy two-four. Yeah, we really need some napalm laid down along Cemetery Ridge. Right. The blue guys. Make it a good one. Roast 'em and toast 'em.

God, I love the smell of napalm on a hot July morning.

Why do I have a feeling that most of us aren't going to survive for much longer?

Enjoy the cup of coffee soldier, it might be your last. :)
