Colonel John Brockenbrough's Virginia Brigade is usually either singled out for its poor performance at Gettysburg or omitted entirely from a battle narrative. Primary sources are scarce and many aspects of the brigade's historical contribution at Gettysburg remain disputed.  This battle walk will retrace their actions on Day 1 and Day 3 and consider the varying interpretations.  We will meet at the 150th Pennsylvania Infantry monument for Day 1.  Halfway through the walk, we will move to the Brockenbrough Brigade Tablet on West Confederate Avenue to interpret their participation in the Day 3 Longstreet's Assault.  We intend to walk all the way to the Bliss Farm and back, so dress accordingly.
