Battle of Gattysburg
Confederate forces (led by Hill and Richard Ewell) were able to drive the outnumbered Federal defenders back through town to Cemetery Hill. Seeking to press his advantage before more Union troops could arrive, Lee gave discretionary orders to attack Cemetery Hill to Ewell. Ewell declined to order the attack, considering the Federal position too strong. By night fall, three more Union corps arrived overnight to strengthen its defenses.
