Long Road South, The
Fairfield, PA, July 4, 1863




Lee's men dug in to receive the expected counterattack. When it didn't come, they made a nighttime withdrawal from their position and headed back to Virginia. An ambulance train that was several miles long jolted over rutted roads, causing great agony for the ten thousand wounded the army of northern Virginia managed to bring with them. Buried were the Confederacy's hopes for victory and the South's quest for independence. Lee's retreat to Virginia marked the biggest turning point of the Civil War.
