The battle of Gettysburg

Three were 3 corps... the first one that led the first corp was General James Longstreet.... the second one was led by General Richard Ewells... then third was led by A.P. Hill. It took place in Pennsylvania. There was a war the worst battle ever in 1863. In that battle we barely survived from it!
