“The Battle of Gettysburg, Friday morning, July 3rd, 1863. In our illustration may be studied the struggle on Friday morning. On the Federal right the battle raged furiously from early dawn. Ewell was determined to advance from the rifle-pits he had taken the night before, and Slocum was equally resolute to recover them. Geary and Birney here met the first assault firmly. For six hours the struggle was desperate on both sides. The Confederates seemed to laugh at death, and again and again charged through the smoke of artillery with shouts that swelled above the uproar. Wheaton’s Brigade, of the Sixth, ws hurried up to the rescue, and the Federal line which had been forced back for a moment, again advanced; more troops were pushed forwad, artillery brought up on a gallop, and posted so as to enfilade the hostile ranks. At eleven o’clock the enemy gave it up, and his shattered bleeding battalions fell back in despair."— Frank Leslie, 1896
