Confederate Brig. Gen. Joseph Kershaw at Gettysburg commanded the largest brigade in Longstreet’s First Corps. On July 2nd this big brigade of veteran fighters would lead the long march (and counter-march) to the Peach Orchard, only to have their attack plans disrupted. Once Kershaw’s brigade did step off, joining in the fight behind Hood’s Division, it proceeded to split into three segments in a bloody, confusing and unexpected fight, costing the Camden lawyer a third of his men.  Guests should park in the Longstreet Tower lot and meet at the South Carolina memorial. The walk will end at the Stony Hill section of the Wheatfield, in case guests wish to make provisions for car-pooling to ferry back.
