on July 1st, One hundred and fifty years ago one of the most decisive battles of the American Civil war was fought. The battle last for three days and at the end there were nearly fifty thousand casualties- nearly eight thousand people and three thousand horses were dead (amazingly only one civilian died during the battle of a stray bullet). On July 4th of 1863, The Confederate Army retreated and the Army of the Potomac slowly pursued.
A couple of years ago I wrote and drew a graphic novel about the battle and the dedication in which Lincoln delivered his address called simply “Gettysburg” you can pick it up here
I did this sketch to commemorate the anniversary.
