151st Pennsylvania Volunteers at Gettysburg

Like Ripe Apples in a Storm

Michael A. Dreese

While the Battle of Gettysburg is often remembered for Chamberlain’s dramatic defense of Little Round Top, Pickett and Pettigrew’s tragic charge, and the stand of the “Iron Brigade,” less-remembered units like the 151st Pennsylvania were also crucial in the Civil War’s most famous battle. The 151st lost over 72 percent of its men to death, wounds, or capture, the second-highest-percentage loss of all Federal units at the battle.

This is the account of that courageous unit and its role in this decisive moment in American history.
