Covered With Glory
The 26th North Carolina Infantry at the Battle of Gettysburg
By
Rod Gragg

". . . .The 26th North Carolina has the dubious distinction of appearing in Fox’s Regimental Losses of the American Civil War, 1861-1865 as having suffered "the severest regimental loss during the Civil War." In just two days of battle, July 1st on McPherson’s Ridge and on the 3rd in the front ranks of Pettigrew’s charge at Gettysburg, the Tar Heels lost over 680 casualties of the 800-plus engaged. . . ."
