Let Us Cross Over The River

By order of the commanding general, I am here to remedy the lack of Civil War blogs on Tumblr. If you have any interest in the Civil War (vaguely interested/mildy/obsessed/fanatical), then this can be your headquarters. If you have any inquiries or questions, I'll be here. Both Yankees and Rebs accepted of course! Maj. Gen. KathyRose (well, okay, I'm a 19 year old English girl but no one has to know that!) Personal blog if anybody's interested: http://amildlookingsky.tumblr.com/

July 2nd, 1863 

The second day of the Battle of Gettysburg rages with the Union forces formed in a ‘fish-hook’ position across the ridges and hills around the town. Conflicts erupt in the Peach Orchard, on Little Round Top where Col. Chamberlain leads his famous bayonet charge and around Cemetery and Culp’s Hill where Confederate forces are repulsed. The Union still occupy a strong position on the field. (x) (x) (x)
