    All the men that fought had volunteered for patriotic reasons of protecting their homes. Most of the men worked on farms.
    Uniforms were supplied by Confederate factories called depots in cities such as Atlanta and Columbus, Georgia, Raleigh, North Carolina. Southerns marched with very little on them and preferred wide brimmed hats instead of the gray hats the army issued that looked like the Union hats. They said that it gave them better protection from the sun and rain when marching this all led to the light marching order. Most Confederate soldiers did not have shoes so they fought bear-foot and when there was a dead Union soldier with shoes still on, the confederate soldiers would take them.

    Gettysburg Address
    Even though the Battle of Gettysburg was over, the memories and many lost loved ones were still there. On November 19,1863, President Abraham Lincoln gave one of the most memorable speeches in American History in dedication to the Soldier's National Cemetery for all those who lost their lives at Gettysburg. Though Lincoln's speech only lasted about two minutes those two minutes were remembered and still will be remembered forever. Many phrases like "Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation: conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." are still remembered today.
