This chapter describes the retreat of Union soldiers through the streets of Gettysburg on 1 July. The streets were swarming with retreating soldiers between 4:00 and 6:00 P.M. that day. The retreating Federals made their way to Cemetery Hill and by the end of the day, there were portions of five batteries awaiting a Confederate attack on East Cemetery Hill alone—an imposing force of thirteen three-inch Ordnance rifles and ten Napoleons.
