NC's First, Farthest and Last-- Part 2

FARTHEST AT GETTYSBURG: /// During the Battle of Gettysburg, North Carolina infantrymen advanced the greatest distance during Pickett's Charge on July 3, 1863. The 11th NC participated in that attack. /// FARTHEST AT CHICKAMAUGA: /// The 58th NC is sometimes credited with the farhest penetration of enemy lines on Snodgrass Hill on 20 September 1863. Although, at least one historian contends that battle conditions that day would make it impossible tosubstantiate the claim. /// --Old Secesh
