Mindtap 12.5 The Battlefront 1862-1865 Video 2 Imagine that you’re a Union soldier incarcerated at Libby Prison in Richmond, Virginia. For several days, you’ve heard only rumors of the outcome of the Battle of Gettysburg, which took place July 1–3, 1863, in southern Pennsylvania. Then, on July 8, you and your fellow prisoners finally receive an accurate account from a reliable informant. Based on the narrated battle map, select the correct response from each dropdown menu to complete the dialogue. YOU: Although I am sorry you ended up in here, friend, might I ask if you bring news of the Battle of Gettysburg? We have received reports from only Southern sources and cannot be sure they are accurate. INFORMANT: I can tell you everything about it because I was there, but I will spare you the suspense and tell you that the Union army emerged victorious. Although General Lee’s troops enjoyed an early advantage, General Meade’s forces routed Lee’s men after securing the coveted high ground on July 1.
