This chapter describes two generals who confronted each other at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, late in the afternoon of 1 July 1863. One was Confederate Lt. Gen Richard Stoddert Ewell, whose troops had just smashed the Union Eleventh Corps and driven it in retreat through the streets of Gettysburg, and who sought to determine if he should push on and try to seize the high ground just south of the town where Union troops were rallying. The other, Union Maj. Gen. Oliver Otis Howard, was on that high ground, Cemetery Hill, and was attempting to organize his badly mauled forces to meet an attack that he believed would soon come.
