PA, The battle was fought where nobody expected it to be, but the roads are what brought the two armies together for battle.
This battle lasted three days. July 1-3 of 1863.
Robert E. Lee planned to invade the North and end the war, but failed because of this battle.

The result of the battle led to the Gettysburg Address by Lincoln, to proclaim equality and "a new birth of freedom".
Out of 160,000 soldiers total from both sides, between 46,000 and 51,000 of them died.
The Union won the battle when the Confederates attacked (a.k.a as "Pickett's Charge").
