At noon on July 1, 1863, Union troops advancedalong Baltimore Street to the fields north of thetown. A few hours later they were routed by theConfederates, and fled toward Cemetery Hill.

One half block north of this point, Anna Garlachwatched this mob scene from her house, observing, "the crowd was so great I thinkI could have walked across the street on theheads of the soldiers."

Following the Union retreat to Cemetery Hillthis section of Baltimore Street became a deadly"no man's land" between hostile skirmishes.

On November 19, 1863, Baltimore Street againfigured prominently in history, when PresidentAbraham Lincoln rode in the procession todedicated the National Cemetery, where hedelivered his immortal Gettysburg Address.

Through the ensuing years, other presidentsand distinguished Americans have traveled alongBaltimore Street to the National Cemetery torenew Lincoln's dedication to our honored heroes.
