~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On July 1, General George Meade and the Union's Army of the Potomac met Lee's force at the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The fighting started on July 1. While the Northern army numbered approximately eighty-five thousand men to the South's seventy-five thousand soldiers, the Confederates outnumbered the Union soldiers as the battle opened. The Confederates drove the Northerners through the town. The Union soldiers took up a defensive position on Culp's Hill and Cemetery Ridge to the south and east of Gettysburg. Most Confederate troops took position on nearby Seminary Ridge to the west of Gettysburg and prepared for the next day's fighting.
82nd Ohio Vol Infantry
Arriving from Emmittsburg at Noon July 1, 1863. Moved rapidly to the support of Dilger's Battery ( Battery I
First Ohio Light Artillery Artillery Brigade Eleventh CorpsCaptain Hubert Dilger ) near the Carlisle Road.
At 3 p.m. changed front to the right and advanced to a position 125 yards in front of this monument [Gettysburg battlefield monument] where exposed both front and flank to a severe fire.
It engaged the enemy then approaching from York. After an obstinate struggle the regiment being outflanked on both sides, withdrew to Cemetery Hill where it remained until the close of the battle.

Sadly when the regiment withdrew this young man was captured on that first engagement and as a prisoner of war was sent to Andersonville prison where he languished until he died of pneumonia on March 4, 1864
