The Battle of Gettysburg was the largest battle ever fought on the North American continent and involved over 51,000 casualties in less than one day’s time of total fighting over a three-day period. The victory of the Union Army of the Potomac over Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s seemingly invincible Army of Northern Virginia was a surprise to all concerned at the time, and, combined with the Confederate surrender at Vicksburg the following day, July 4, 1863, was undeniably the turning point in the American Civil War.
The example of the Confederate high command’s reliance on past practices which had produced success up to that point in the war, and its inability to adapt to the dramatic changes posed by the circumstances at Gettysburg, stands in stark contrast to that of the Union army’s strong alignment and creative initiative in operating cohesively, differing significantly from its operational record in prior battles. How this contrast is driven so clearly by obvious actions and inactions of key leaders provides a vivid leadership case study of immeasurable relevance for contemporary business leaders.
