The Battle of Gettysburg took place July 1 through July 3, 1863 in Pennsylvania. Charles Francis Adams, Junior served as a Union Army General in the U.S. Civil War and was a chief of squadron in the Gettysburg campaign.
Adams, in this speech given six years after the event, reflects on the magnitude of that terrible mêlée, the events of those days and the need to go beyond factionalism and party politics and act as citizens in a united county in the future.
