Summary The Story of a Union Artillery Commander. Gettysburg, July 3, 1863. The fate of a divided nation hinges on the outcome of a climactic meeting between Union forces under General Winfield Scott Hancock and Confederate forces under Generals Pickett, Pettigrew, and Trimble. At the center of the Union lines on Cemetery Ridge, where it will bear the brunt of the deadly grey tide, stands Battery A, 4th United States Artillery. Its commanding officer is a twenty-two-year-old West Pointer from Wisconsin, a veteran of some of the war's bloodiest battles. This is the story of that man, that moment, and all that led to it.
