My version of this photograph is a soldier the evening of June 30 1863

Elements of the two armies initially collided at Gettysburg on July 1, 1863.
Some estimates place between 46,000 and 51,000 soldiers from both armies as casualties in the three day battle. 7,863 were killed. 27,224 wounded and 11,199 captured or missing.
