Decision 1 of 4
Result: Significant Confederate Victory
General Ewell's Second Corps conducts a "turning movement" -- refusing to engage the enemy while marching around the Union right flank. By four PM, his divisions slam across Rock Creek in the east to rapidly take Culp's Hill after a fierce fight and then penetrate further to the Southeast.
Union troops stubbornly hold on to the high ground of Cemetery Hill and the woods at the base of Culp's Hill, refusing to abandon their positions. Union reinforcements check further progress south of Wolf Hill and reinforce the other flank on Cemetery Ridge and the Round Tops.
Exhausted by the near-continuous day's marching and fighting, both sides pause to regroup around 7 PM.
