This chapter describes the Confederates' arrival at the town of Gettysburg. There is no way of knowing which Confederates were the first to enter the town, for it was a large place and there was much activity that day. Col. Abner Perrin, commander of McGowan's brigade, Fender's division claimed the honor for the 1st and 14th South Carolina regiments, which had pursued fleeing First Corps troops after breaking their last line at the seminary.
