Description: 

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, was the site of the Civil War's bloodiest battle, fought over the three days July 1–3, 1863. "Pickett's charge" (289) on the final day resulted in 6500 men being killed or wounded in about an hour. ("Manassas," where Shreve mistakenly thinks Pickett's charge occurred, is the town in Virginia near the fields where two different battles, First and Second Bull Run, were fought, 289). The Confederate regiment from Yoknapatawpha that Sutpen commands in 1863 is supposed to have been "present at Gettysburg" (154).
