: My ancestors fought at Gettysburg, and most of them were in the hard-hit 26th Regiment. AMazingly, they all came home alive, though not necessarily all in one piece.
>My 1st cousin 4x removed (Egbert Moore) was crippled for life when he participated in the charge of Culp's Hill with the 48th Virginia (the famous "Stonewall Brigade").
He was captured in a hospital on the retreat from Gettysburg, paroled, & returned to Russell County, VA, to live out his days.
