Gettysburg: #7 – The Slaughter at Devil’s Den – History Traveler Episode 132


May 24,2021

Part 7 of the Gettysburg series. Gettysburg. This titanic battle that ended with over 50,000 combined casualties for the Union and Confederates and completely turned a town inside out began with a single shot on the Chamberburg Pike on the morning of July 1, 1863.

One of bloodiest and most sinister looking parts of the Gettysburg battlefield has to be the rocky area known as Devil’s Den. It was here that Confederates from Hood’s division attacked the Union left flank on July 2, 1863 which resulted in some of the most brutal fighting during the entire 3 day battle. We’re taking a look at Devil’s Den the way that few have before by getting off of the beaten path and walking the ground in the same way that the men who fought there did. Much to see and learn here!
