The first day of fighting at Gettysburg appeared to belong to the Confederates, as they hounded Union soldiers through the streets of the town. The new Order of Battle Series detail the organization, historical background, and performance of each army unit that converged at Gettysburg. Individual acts of courage are counterposed against the Confederate commanders'inability or unwillingness to capitalize on their first day's success. July 1 ended with the Army of Northern Virginia in the familiar position of having driven their foes in near route. However, at dusk, in the failing light, the Army of the Potomac could be seen gathering itself on the forbidding heights south of Gettysburg.
