Fun Fact!: The Battle of Gettysburg transformed the town of Gettysburg. Prior to the Civil War, Gettysburg had been a prosperous village that supported two small colleges. After the battle, however, it was seared by the memories of the slaughter. In the battle’s immediate aftermath, corpses outnumbered residents of the village of just over 2,000 by four to one.

Another Fun Fact!: Brigadier General Gouverneur Warren, a Union hero at Little Round Top in Day Two of the battle, saw previous action with the 5th and 10th New York Volunteer Infantry at the Seven Days Battles, Second Manassas and Antietam.
