Many believe that the Confederate forces came close to winning the battle of Gettysburg on Culp’s hill on the evening of July 2nd. We will look at the remarkable set of circumstances that led to the attacks and then we will examine the evening action on Culp’s Hill, focusing on the attacking troops of Johnson’s division and the defending troops from Greene’s brigade. The tour will meet at Benner’s Hill where we will discuss the planning of the attacks and examine the starting point. We will then car pool to the summit of Culp’s Hill and walk Greene’s line discussing the action.
