Here’s Ranger Troy Harman with the first winter lecture of the Gettysburg Natioal Military Park’s 2023 Winter Lecture Series, a presentation on confederate reconnaissance of Culp’s Hill.
The video’s description reads, “Did the Southern Army investigate Culp’s Hill before attacking it? It is imagined the Southern Army attacked Culp’s Hill for two days without knowing what they were walking into, or how impossible the task. It is generally presumed that if some forethought and investigation of the ground and circumstances had been carried out earlier, the 12 hours of combat there may never have occurred. How much truth is there to hastily attacking the hill without prior knowledge of Union strength, location, and morale? Troy Harman will explore and explain through multiple vivid accounts, illustrations, and maps.”
