"Battle of Gettysburg" was written by Owen Tedford while attending Greenwich High School in Greenwich, Connecticut

Historians generally agree that the Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the American Civil War. This belief has driven historians to attempt to find specific moments where the Army of Northern Virginia lost the battle. Some point to events such as the 20th Maine's charge on Little Round Top or Pickett's Charge, while others claim the advantage given by Meade's interior lines as the reason for the Confederate defeat. Using a variety of sources, including but not limited to autobiographies, unpublished letters, transcripts from Congressional hearings, and after-action reports written by participants, this paper seeks to challenge previous historians and point to a different moment when the Confederates were defeated. The focus of this paper is the decisions made by leaders on both sides that led to the battle for Cemetery Hill on July 2nd as the turning point for the American Civil War.
