This chapter describes the effort to eliminate the Confederate bulge at Culp's Hill. Brig. Gen. John W. Geary's division and its position were the keys to the Federal effort. The Confederates could not exploit their penetration so long as Geary's division held the main hill, and since most of Johnson's force faced Geary's front, Geary's men would have to bear the brunt of the fight.
