Gettysburg--The Second Day

This chapter describes events following the Confederate victory at Peach Orchard. The Mississippians smashed the lines of the Seventy-first, Seventy-second, and possibly the Seventy-third New York regiments without great difficulty. However, their grand effort ended with Barksdale's fall and Plum Run's swale. The brigade had come far, and its charge was one of the grandest of the war. But it was in disorder, its strength sapped by the loss of many men in its mile-long advance. Barksdale's regiments had no support troops to push their attack home, and the battle was taking a new turn.
