Longstreet has unleashed his violent attacks against the Union left on July 2nd. Troops from the Union 2nd Corps are scrambling to meet the tidal wave of the Army of Northern Virginia and plug the gap in the middle of the Union’s Cemetery Ridge line. The valiant sacrifices of Col Norman J. Hall and BG William Harrow’s Brigades south of the Copse of Trees are often overshadowed by other assaults. We will meet near BG John Gibbon’s statue on Hancock Avenue and explore the fights with Wilcox’s Alabamians and Lang’s Floridians. Fairly easy hike over rolling and uneven fields
