Experts in physics, geology, crowd control and cartography join forces with military historians to better understand this epic battle.

Over three hot days at the beginning of July 1863 the forces of the Union and the Confederacy fought an epic battle in and around a small town in Pennsylvania. When the Battle of Gettysburg was over, the two exhausted sides had inflicted more than 50,000 casualties upon one another. To this day it remains the largest ever battle fought on American soil. The third day of the battle has always been thought of as "the high water mark of the Confederacy", the day when Confederate General Robert E. Lee lost the decisive battle of the American Civil War. But scientific battlefield evidence is mounting that by the time the artillery began firing that day, the Confederate fight was already doomed. And when Pickett's Charge - the famous full frontal attack against the Union lines - got under way, the Battle of Gettysburg had effectively already been lost.
