This tour focuses on the fighting for Fleetwood Hill, the most intense and prolonged combat on June 8, 1863. At one point 12 regiments - 6 Union and 6 Confederate - struggled for control of the hilltop. Unlike most Civil War battles, the troopers fought from the saddle, mostly with sabers. One frustrated Rebel was heard to shout at his Yankee opponent, "Why don't you Yankees put away your sabers, draw your pistols, and fight like gentlemen!"
