This chapter describes the artillery duel between Federal and Confederate troops on 2 July. In his recollections in later years, Major Osborn wrote that if it had been General Lee's intention to drive the Federal artillery from Cemetery Hill, the Confederate shelling had been “useless”. The Federal batteries accomplished two other things that afternoon. Because of their effectiveness, they attracted Confederate fire to themselves, where it did comparatively little damage, and kept it from being directed at the infantry. They also compelled the enemy to exhaust its ammunition.
