The Battle of Gettysburg marked the historic turning point in the American Civil War. Over three days, Union forces under the command of General George Meade repulsed the Confederate army led by General Robert E Lee, turning the course of the war in favor of the North. Four-and-a-half months later, President Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the greatest addresses in American history on the Gettysburg field where more than 7,600 troops had died.
