The first day at Gettysburg, more significant than simply a prelude to the bloody second and third days, ranks as the 23rd biggest battle of the war by number of troops engaged.

Both arrived late in the morning. The shape of the Union line is popularly described as a "fishhook" formation.
Lee's battle plan for July 2 called for a general assault of Meade's positions. On the right, Longstreet's First Corps was to position itself to attack the Union left flank, facing northeast astraddle the Emmitsburg Road, and to roll up the Union line. The attack sequence was to begin with Maj. Richard H. Anderson 's division of Hill's Third Corps. On the left, Lee instructed Ewell to position his Second Corps to attack Culp's Hill and Cemetery Hill when he heard the gunfire from Longstreet's assault, preventing Meade from shifting troops to bolster his left.
Though it does not appear in either his or Lee's Official Report, Ewell claimed years later that Lee had changed the order to simultaneously attack, calling for only a "diversion", to be turned into a full-scale attack if a favorable opportunity presented itself. Lee's plan, however, was based on faulty intelligence, exacerbated by Stuart's continued absence from the battlefield. Though Lee personally reconnoitered his left during the morning, he did not visit Longstreet's position on the Confederate right.
Even so, Lee rejected suggestions that Longstreet move beyond Meade's left and attack the Union flank, capturing the supply trains and effectively blocking Meade's escape route. Hood and McLaws, after their long march, were not yet in position and did not launch their attacks until just after 4 p. As Longstreet's left division, under Maj. Lafayette McLaws , advanced, they unexpectedly found Maj.
Sickles had been dissatisfied with the position assigned him on the southern end of Cemetery Ridge. The new line ran from Devil's Den, northwest to the Peach Orchard, then northeast along the Emmitsburg Road to south of the Codori farm. This created an untenable salient at the Peach Orchard; Brig. Andrew A. Humphreys 's division in position along the Emmitsburg Road and Maj. David B. Birney 's division to the south were subject to attacks from two sides and were spread out over a longer front than their small corps could defend effectively.
Knowing a Confederate attack was imminent and a retreat would be endangered, Meade refused Sickles' offer to withdraw. Meade was forced to send 20, reinforcements:  the entire V Corps, Brig. Hood's division moved more to the east than intended, losing its alignment with the Emmitsburg Road,  attacking Devil's Den and Little Round Top. The III Corps was virtually destroyed as a combat unit in this battle, and Sickles's leg was amputated after it was shattered by a cannonball.
Caldwell's division was destroyed piecemeal in the Wheatfield. Anderson's division, coming from McLaws's left and starting forward around 6 p.

As fighting raged in the Wheatfield and Devil's Den, Col. His brigade of four relatively small regiments was able to resist repeated assaults by Brig. Evander M. Law 's brigade of Hood's division. Meade's chief engineer, Brig.
Gouverneur K. Warren , had realized the importance of this position, and dispatched Vincent's brigade, an artillery battery, and the th New York to occupy Little Round Top mere minutes before Hood's troops arrived. Joshua L.
Chamberlain but possibly led by Lt. Holman S. Melcher , was one of the most fabled episodes in the Civil War and propelled Col. Chamberlain into prominence after the war. Ewell interpreted his orders as calling only for a cannonade. Hill's 55 guns, engaged in a two-hour artillery barrage at extreme range that had little effect.
Finally, about six o'clock, Ewell sent orders to each of his division commanders to attack the Union lines in his front. Edward "Allegheny" Johnson 's Division "had not been pushed close to [Culp's Hill] in preparation for an assault, although one had been contemplated all day. It now had a full mile 1, m to advance and Rock Creek had to be crossed. This could only be done at few places and involved much delay. Only three of Johnson's four brigades moved to the attack.
