Once again in the heat and humidity of a Pennsylvania summer, not unlike the weather they fought in 75 years earlier, some 2,000 surviving Union and Confederate veterans gathered in 1938 during the first four days of July, for a final reunion at Gettysburg. Here, on this hallowed ground, 172,000 soldiers had clashed from 7:30 a.m. July 1, 1863, when the first shots were fired, to its final dreadful conclusion at 4 p.m. July 3. Stooped with age - most were in their 90s or centenarians - gray and bearded, they had gathered to remember their fallen comrades and the battle they had managed to survive.
