Very good!! Ok you want a little more difficult, here goes?? I will be impressed if you get this one.

In the famous Pickett's Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg, Genreal Pickett was one of the divisional commanders who participated in the assault. Name the other two divisional commanders that participated in the assault. (remember divisional commanders, not brigade or regimental commanders). Ok, now impress me!! Good luck.

That was a good guess. Actually they led their men on the second day of battle. The divisional commanders I was looking for are Johnson Pettigrew and Isaac Trimble. I know those were kind of tough.

Which Union General was killed on the first day of Gettysburg?

Is it the 2nd, 6th, and 7th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiments, the 19th Indiana, and later the 24th Michigan?
