The Battle of Gettysburg is a defining moment of the American Civil War. This battle included three terrible days of battling into a hot climate in and around the residential community of Gettysburg Pennsylvania. The Battle of Gettysburg was fought from 3rd of July to 4th of July 1863 around the city of Gettysburg Pennsylvania. Robert E. Lee commanded the Confederate armed force. The Union armed force was also driven by General George Gordon. The fight began when Confederate warriors entering Gettysburg, looking for shoes and different supplies, spotted Union officers who were just arriving in the community. The Confederates would disappear, but they did return on 1st of July with significant power to go up against the adversary. In spite of the fact that the fight put the men, ladies, and children of Gettysburg in awesome peril one and only regular citizen was killed; her name was Jennie Wade. No civilian was killed during the battle except the 20-year-old Jennie Wade, who was killed via a random bullet, which went through the door of a house. Jennie was the only civilian who died during the 3-day Battle of Gettysburg. The Battle of Gettysburg is now viewed as the defining moment of the American Civil War; ceasing the Confederates intrusion of the North.
