Prior to the Battle of Gettysburg, General Lee was feeling confident after his victory at the Battle of Chancellorsville. So, the general decided to go on the offensive and brought his troops to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, where a 3-day battle with the Union army of the Potomac ensued. On the third day, Lee sent 15,000 troops to Cemetery Ridge in what is known as Picketts Charge. The Union delivered a devastating blow thanks to their artillery fire, and the next day Lees army departed from Gettysburg, signaling the beginning of the Souths decline.
