The attached article, from Confederate Veteran Magazine, presented the drama of events as they unfolded on the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg with an eye to specifically telling the tale of the North Carolina regiments and the part they played as the battle was taking shape. The author, Captain S.A. Ashe (author of the 1902 book, "The charge at Gettysburg") explained thoroughly which Confederate and Federal units arrived first at Gettysburg and at what hour, while indulging in just a little Monday morning quarterbacking:

"If General Longstreet, with his very fine corps, had struck the Federals early the next morning, there probably never would have been a third day at Gettysburg."

FYI: While fighting at Gettysburg, the 26th North Carolina Regiment of Infantry lost 615 out of 843 men. Their commander, Colonel Henry King Burgyn, was mortally wounded while carrying the unit's flag.

It was on the first day at Gettysburg that the Confederates made a terrible mistake. Read about it here.
