(p.269) Chapter 20 Heth Attacks
Gettysburg—The First Day

Harry W. Pfanz

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter describes the attack carried out by Heth, which drove the Federals from McPherson Ridge. Heth claimed that his division had lost 2,300 men in thirty minutes. Apart from their casualties, his brigades were out of ammunition and halted their advance. As they prepared to advance again, Pender's division came up from the rear and passed over their line. Pender's arrival signaled the end of Heth's division's battle on 1 July and the beginning of the day's last round.
