Addressing Gettysburg

Sep 20, 2021

LBG Rob Abbott makes his debut on the show to talk about Confederate Artillery Leadership at Gettysburg. He is also giving a tour on the subject this month on September 26, 2021. Here's the description:


Confederate Artillery Leadership at Gettysburg”  featuring LBG Rob Abbott

The only Confederate artillery personality most people know is Edward Porter Alexander, “ How old are you son?” Confederate artillery seems to be the noisy window dressing for the battle. Who are these men? Exactly what are they
doing? Join LBG Rob Abbott as we explore the senior Confederate Artillery leadership, the Army and Corps Chiefs of Artillery, and the battalion commanders. We will also discuss artillery tactics, challenges, and logistics. Finally, we will point out some unique types of cannon and showcase a few individual batteries.
Meeting Place: Oak Hill by the Carter’s Battalion tablet. Second stop will be by the Virginia State Monument on West Confederate Avenue and the third and final stop will be the “Longstreet” War Department Tower on West Confederate Avenue. The walk will be easy, mostly on fairly-level grass or pavement."
