No single decision by a general in the Army of the Potomac proved to be such a lightning rod for controversy and criticism as Maj. Gen. Daniel E. Sickles’ bold movement of the Third Corps to the high ground west of Cemetery Ridge on July 2, 1863 at Gettysburg. This decisive yet precarious choice produced the battle’s bloodiest hours of fighting and may well have given the Army of Northern Virginia its best chances for victory in Pennsylvania.

John Hunt Morgan's famed 2,500-man cavalry division started north from Alexandria, Tennessee, on June 11, 1863, in what would be one of America's most remarkable cavalry operations. Though Bragg had ordered Morgan to stay within the confines of Kentucky, Morgan harbored a different plan. Morgan believed that in order to truly divert the Army of the Ohio away from East Tennessee, he needed to do the unfathomable -- invade the Northern states.
