It was the plan of the Confederate leader General Robert E. Lee to invade Pennsylvania. According to General Lee, a strong Confederate victory would soon convince the Union to surrender, a hope that motivated him to wage a battle against the Union army who was led by General George C. Meade, who was appointed by President Lincoln as the new leader of the Union army.

The strength of the Union army was greater than the Confederate army with the former having 90000 soldiers while the latter contained about 75000 troops. The meeting point for the two armies was Gettysburg, which was in Pennsylvania and the meeting took place in the year 1863 on the 1st of July. The battle of Gettysburg lasted for about three long days. Although the Union won the battle of Gettysburg, it suffered the loss of 23000 soldiers while the Confederate army endured the deaths of 28000 soldiers.
