On July 1, 1863, the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia and the Union Army of the Potomac collided at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in the first of three days of bloody combat. The Union victory there, and the South’s surrender at Vicksburg on July 4, marked the beginning of the Confederacy’s slow slide into defeat.

In three consecutive Saturday​ morning talks, military historian Larry Kerr will discuss the political, diplomatic, strategic, and tactical elements of the battle along with the human stories that make Gettysburg such a powerful part of America’s memory.
