By July, 1863, Colonel Charles Candy's brigade of Ohio and Pennsylvania regiments was one of the most combat-tested in the Army of the Potomac. Candy's men had already built a reputation for reliability in battle in the Shenandoah Valley, at Cedar Mountain, Antietam and Chancellorsvile; they would earn further laurels on the Third of July at Gettysburg. This walk will examine the history of this superb until and its role in the defense of the bloody slopes of Culp's Hill. Meet at the Spangler's Spring parking lot. The tour will involve significant uphill walking.
