Hi Larry,

Interesting, why is the second article in German, or Dutch?

Also the author of the 1St story, seems to be speculating alot?

You wonder where he got his information??

Thanks again, for posting,
MD

M.D. The last two articles were from the Dr Lecha Caunty Patriot, a German language newspaper out of Allentown PA. Check this link.

The big fight on the first day is a remarkable episode in the Civil War.

I often reflect on the severe casualties suffered by the divisions of Heth, Pender and Rodes that day, and wonder how far the subsequent history of the battle was determined by that damage.

It's noteworthy that exactly one year before, Lee's men had taken very similar casualties in their abortive attacks at Malvern Hill.

That had been a terrible tactical reverse for the South, but it heralded a major strategic triumph for the Confederacy . The first day at Gettysburg was quite the opposite .

Regards, Phil
