Confederate Brigadier General Carnot Posey fought his brigade as circumstances forced him on July 2nd and 3rd. Did Posey lose control of his brigade on July 2nd causing the Confederate attacks to break down? Did he misinterpret his orders? How did the Bliss farm affect Posey’s actions? What was Posey’s roll during Longstreet’s assault on July 3rd? We will examine these questions by studying the words of the participants and walking the ground. We will visit the remains of the William Bliss farm and the advanced positions of the brigade. Meet at the Posey Brigade marker, which is near the Virginia State monument. Wear good walking shoes and bring water, as we will be walking almost two miles.
