This chapter describes the aftermath of Pickett's Charge. Everyone—the armies, the prisoners, and even the wounded—eventually left Gettysburg, but they all took a bit of the battle with them. The Federals rejoiced over their repulse of the Rebel attack on July 3 and saw in Gettysburg proof that their cause was blessed. While the Yankees brought renewed faith from the battlefield, the Rebels took gloom and depression back home with them.
