Although Antietam holds the dubious honor of the deadliest single day of fighting, more men fell on the fields of Gettysburg in three days than on any other North American battlefield before or since. More importantly, this battle represented a strategic turning point in the American Civil War and has thus been referred to as the “high-water mark” of the Confederacy. Although, tactically a draw, strategically it was a major victory for the Union. After the battle, the Army of Northern Virginia limped home, never to regain their former strength and confidence. And although the fighting would continue for another two years, Gettysburg instilled new confidence in the Union army. They had proven to themselves, and to the world, that they could fight and win against the remarkable Robert E. Lee.
