USA: Civil War reenactors parade through Gettysburg on Remembrance Day
Subscribe to our channel! rupt.ly/subscribe
American Civil War reenactors took part in the annual Remembrance Day Parade in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday. They marked the anniversary of the establishment of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in 1863 following the battle of Gettysburg.
Reenactors wore both Union and Confederate uniforms as they paraded through the streets.
One protester criticised the use of the Confederate flag, noting that he was tired of the Confederate flag winning the battle, because he said it's sanitises the Confederacy. And the only reason [the] Confederacy existed was to protect slavery.
The battle of Gettysburg is considered the decisive military action of the American Civil War and its turning point which allowed the Unionists eventually win over the Confederates.

Abner Doubleday began the Civil War as a Union officer and aimed the first cannon shot in response to the bombardment opened on Ft. Sumter in 1861. Two years later, after a series of battles (including Antietam, where he was wounded), Doubleday took over a division in the Army of the Potomac's 1st Corps.
These are his memoirs of service in two of the War's great campaigns. At Chancellorsville, a very promising start made by General Hooker against Lee's Confederate forces fell to a defeat when, in Doubleday's estimation, normal and prudent precautions against surprise in the heavily-wooded battlefield were not carried out; he also seemingly apologizes for Hooker's lack of leadership during the battle as a result of his having been stunned by a cannon ball hitting the post against which he was leaning.
After Chancellorsville, Hooker was replaced as Army Commander by General George Meade. Doubleday describes the curious circumstances that led the two opposing armies to meet at Gettysburg in Pennsylvania. When Doubleday's superior, General John Reynolds, was killed by a sharpshooter on the first day's battle, he took over the 1st Corps and fought it well against converging Confederate divisions that badly outnumbered him. The Corps was forced by battle losses to retire, but its desperate fight bought the time needed for Union reinforcements to pour into Gettysburg and thus prevent a defeat in detail.
General Howard of the XIth Corps replaced Doubleday as the senior commander on the field, and mistakenly wrote to Meade that 1st Corps had routed after practically no fighting. Thus, when Meade arrived, he removed Doubleday from command of 1st Corps, replacing him with a more junior general from another Corps. The snub would embitter Doubleday against Meade. This book is in part Doubleday's revenge, as he picks apart Meade's indecision after the battle was essentially won, with the repulse of the famous Pickett's Charge. In his view, Meade could have won the war at that moment. (Summary by Mark Smith)

Gettysburg National Military Park, Pennsylvania - Full Tour HD (2017)
The Gettysburg National Military Park protects and interprets the landscape of the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War. Located in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the park is managed by the National Park Service. The GNMP properties include most of the Gettysburg Battlefield, many of the battle's support areas during the battle (e.g., reserve, supply, & hospital locations), and several other non-battle areas associated with the battle's aftermath and commemoration, including the Gettysburg National Cemetery. Many of the park's 43,000 American Civil War artifacts are displayed in the Gettysburg Museum and Visitor Center.
The park has more wooded land than in 1863, and the National Park Service has an ongoing program to restore portions of the battlefield to their historical non-wooded conditions, as well as to replant historic orchards and woodlots that are now missing. In addition, the NPS is restoring native plants to meadows and edges of roads, to encourage habitat as well as provide for historic landscape. There are also considerably more roads and facilities for the benefit of tourists visiting the battlefield park.
In 1915, the National Park Commission tested the battlefield guides and, due to the limited knowledge (particularly of the most experienced, e.g., only 1 in 8 could name the 7 avenues), established a school for licensing tour guides to charge fees.

The States in the Civil War: Pennsylvania
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania had a great impact on the Civil War. It gave the most men to the Union Army, second only by a couple thousand by New York, the bloodiest and biggest battle in North America, the Battle of Gettysburg, was fought there, and the state provided many fine and brave generals to the Union Army (in fact, it even provided one general, John Pemberton, to the Confederate Army.)
If you would like to have your state featured in a video documenting its contributions to the Civil War, send me a message about it.
