(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is a SET of TWO original A.C.B. & Co. postcards from the 1920s. They each show a depiction of a battle at Gettysburg, "Charge of the Louisiana Tiger's Second Day's Battle, Gettysburg, Pa." and "Third Day's Battle, Pickett's Charge, Gettysburg, Pa."
"The Storming of Cemetery Hill by Hay's and Hoke's Confederate brigades on evening of July 2nd, 1863, proved to be an awful hand-to-hand struggle. Rammers, hand spikes and even stones were used. The "Tigers" were practically annihilated. They advanced 1700 strong, retired with less than 500."
"Third Day's Battle: Pickett's Charge, Gettysburg, Pa.-- The picture here presented is from a standard painting and represents the climax in the eventful struggle at Gettysburg, when the Confederate columns of assault, headed by the division of Virginians under Pickett, were hurled against the Union center-- the position defended by Second Corps. under General Hancock, who is represented on horseback to the left."
The postcards are used and are in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, a name written on the back of each card.
