On July 3, 1863 – 150 years ago today - General Robert E. Lee ordered 12,500 Confederate troops to attack the center of the Union Army line at the Battle of Gettysburg. The assault was a disaster and the ill-conceived attack ensured a Union victory. A man of strong character, Lee accepted total responsibility for the defeat. Had the battle gone differently, the map of the United States might look much different today.
