July 2, 1863 was the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg during the Civil War, one of the most well-known battles of the conflict. It was on this day that Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and the 20th Maine would make their stand on Little Round Top to defend the position and help save the Army of the Potomac from defeat. The battle would be won by the Union on July 3, the day of Pickett's failed charge at the Union lines.
