Gettysburg—The First Day

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter describes the Union infantry's debut into the conflict at Gettysburg, which was marked by fire exchanged between the brigades of Brig. Gen. Lysander Cutler and Brig. Gen. Joseph R. Davis. What might have been little more than a skirmish between cavalry outposts and reconnoitering infantry ballooned into a full-scale battle. Regardless of the intentions of the two commanders, the long marches of their armies were reaching a climax at Gettysburg.
