Decision 1 of 4
Result: Significant Confederate Victory
General Ewell's Second Corps slams into the Union forces' northern flank, sending them reeling back through the town of Gettysburg. Simultaneous attacks from the west push Union forces toward Cemetery Hill and Cemetery Ridge, where they have stopped to regroup and collect stragglers.
Confederate troops have scored a sound, tactical victory, but are very tired after marching, fighting all day, and taking casualties. Union forces are in some disarray and exhausted as well, but appear to be fortifying the hilltops in the area and the high, defensible ground around Cemetery hill in the north and the Round Tops in the south.
