FIFTH RELEASE - BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG 1863
The Battle of Gettysburg was the historic turning point in the American Civil War where Union forces under the command of General George Meade repulsed the Confederate army led by General Robert E Lee.
During the opening clashes on 1 July 1863, Confederacy troops took the early initiative north of Gettysburg, forcing the Union side to form a defensive line on high ground to the south of the town. Full-scale battle began on the second day, but the attack by the Confederacy was only partially successful in dislodging Union defenders from their positions. On the climactic third day, Confederate guns bombarded the Union centre on Cemetery Ridge. The infantry’s subsequent charge across open fields, however, left them hopelessly exposed to fierce fire from Union artillery.
With Lee’s invasion plan in ruins, the course of the war turned in favour of the North. Four and a half months later, President Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the greatest addresses in American history on the Gettysburg field where more than 7,600 troops had died.

Each coin is housed in a presentation display case and superbly illustrated shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
