Addressing Gettysburg Podcast

Nov 22, 2021

Charlie Fennell dropped by the studio to talk about one of the lesser-talked-about brigades of the Army of the Potomac (in spite of their high casualty rate)- Biddle's Brigade.

Technically Rowley's Brigade, Biddle's Brigade arrived on the First Corps line late in the morning on July 1, 1863. It was during that fight that they would receive the majority of their 66% loss. The fighting was intense for this brigade. So why don't most people hear a lot about it? "Because they were placed in line next to the Iron Brigade, as Charlie jokes in this episode. Perhaps there's some truth to that. 

During the Patron-submitted-questions part of the show, two questions spark a debate about the "Harvest of Death" photos.
