Summary

Summary

Long before General George G. Meade and General Robert E. Lee ever heard of Gettysburg or even dreamed of a massive confrontation, the Federal government had already recognized the town and the surrounding countryside of Adams County as a centrally located place to assign troops. Before the fighting erupted on July 1, 1863, in the fields west of town, a number of relatively large military encampments had been established, and military maneuvers had already taken place in the same vicinity where thousands would die in the course of the battle.
