July 28, 2020 "The Philadelphia Brigade Derails Longstreet’s Assault at The Angle“
LBG Jerry Hahn
Most visitors to Gettysburg have at least heard of Pickett’s Charge and envisioned the long gray lines advancing across the rolling fields. In tonight’s walk, we will occupy that focal area of their attack – The Angle. We will delve into the commanders and men that served in the Philadelphia Brigade as well as the conflicts between some units (including Cushing’s and Cowan’s batteries) and how the monuments there came to be. Some old perceptions may change. It will be easy walking and staying around The Angle. A good night to bring your foldable chair as we tame the Gray Tide from overwhelming the Union line.
