Quotes

"We're kind of unique among the state parks in that we have the opportunity to do just about everything here, hiking and photography, mountain biking, bird watching, fishing, canoeing, pedal boats -- just a little bit of everything."
July 2, 1863 : "Longstreet’s lead division under Maj Gen. John Bell Hood advanced and encountered stubborn resistance from Union infantry holding a strong defensive position around the craggy rock formation known as Devil s Den, even as elements of the force skirted this action and moved toward the Round Tops.Col. Vincent had just arrived on Little Round Top when Texans and Alabamians assaulted the rocky height. The resulting fight is one of the war’s most celebrated engagements, concluding in dramatic fashion when the regiment on the far left of the entire Union line, the 20th Maine, having expended its supply of ammunition, executed a precise and unexpected bayonet charge, sweeping the hillside clear of its equally exhausted foes.  In the bloodiest fighting at Gettysburg, the combat spread to the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard and as far north as Cemetery Ridge, where a near-suicidal bayonet charge by the 1st Minnesota, bought time for reinforcements to arrive a nd push back some of the last of Lt Gen. A P Hill’s Confederates. Of the 262 men who made the charge, only 47 escaped unscathed — a staggering 82 percent casualty rate. While the Southerners captured Devil s Den and the Peach Orchard, the Federal line on Little Round Top and Cemetery Ridge held firm."
Ten Facts About Gettysburg : "Fact #3: The Second Day’s Battle (July 2) was the largest and costliest of the three days.  The second day’s fighting (at Devil s Den, Little Round Top, the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, Cemetery Ridge, Trostle’s Farm, Culp s Hill and Cemetery Hill) involved at least 100,000 soldiers of which roughly 20,000 were killed, wounded, captured or missing.The second day in itself ranks as the 10th bloodiest battle of the Civil War—with far more casualties than the much larger Battle of Fredericksburg."
