Did you know
Did you know the battle of Gettysburg happened by pure chance ?
It seems that General Robert E. Lee was heading his troops north towards Harrisburg He heard that their were some boots in Gettysburg. In desperate need for the shoes for his troops he headed his men there.
Meanwhile Union troops were also headed north. They collided so to speak with the Confederate troops and this resulted in the bloody battle of Gettysburg where 50,000 men lost their lives
