The soldiers that Gen. Henry Lockwood led to Gettysburg were some of the least experienced in the Army of the Potomac, with little understanding of the realities of battle that awaited them. By day’s end on July 3rd, they had become different men: fighting men, forged in the crucible of combat. Join LBG Stuart Dempsey as we explore how 1,800 soldiers from Maryland and New York were transformed from rookies into veterans on the bloody slopes of Culp’s Hill.  Meeting point: Father Corby monument, Hancock Avenue.  Note: After the first tour stops on Cemetery Ridge, participants will caravan by vehicle to Culp’s Hill. The tour includes walks along Cemetery Ridge and Culp’s Hill, including a couple of moderate inclines.
