This chapter describes the battle between the Army of the Potomac and Confederate troops. The terrain gained by the Confederates through their assault was limited to that held by Sickles' advanced line. Essentially all of the Army of the Potomac was on the field, its line on Cemetery Ridge remained intact, and its position was stronger than it had been when the Confederate assault began. The Army of the Potomac repelled enemy attacks all along the line and had punished the Confederate attackers severely.
