Strategy pickett s charge

STRATEGY (Pickett’s Charge)

  • Confederates planned to unleash artillery barrage, focus on center

  • Barrage began at 1 PM, both inflicted damage on each other

  • Confederate troops aimed high, missed, ran out of ammo

  • Next attack planned 12,000 men to march 1000 yards

  • Confederates opened fire, started at Seminary Ridge, received Union fire from Cemetery Hill to Little Round Top

  • Union forces withdrew to exchange batteries, Confederates advanced

  • Confederate soldiers rearranged, gave Union a better shot

  • March continued, Confederates devastated by “Angle” of Union soldiers

  • Pickett lost over half of his army, retreated


Strategy other

KILPATRICK vs. LONGSTREET

    STUART vs. GREGG

  • Confederates charged, halted by Union countercharge

  • Confederate forces arranged into column, vulnerable

  • Confederates retreated after being cut off, attacked from all sides

  • Neither side claimed victory
