Robert Rodes and his Division of Ewell's Corps arrived at Gettysburg with a reputation for solid fighting during the Peninsula Campaign and Antietam (Sharpsburg) in 1862 and having led Stonewall Jackson's flank attack at Chancellorsville. What happened at Gettysburg? During this walk we will explore the actions and criticisms of Rodes and his Division at Gettysburg, from the preemptive and uncoordinated attack on the afternoon of July 1st to the failure to support Early's attack on Cemetery Hill on July 2nd. Our walk will begin at the Eternal Peace Light Memorial on Oak Hill.
