On day two of the Battle of Gettysburg, General Lee's fiercest fighters, known as Hoods Texas Brigade, were called upon once again. Hoods Texas Brigade attached to another unit, planning on taking two positions. The first was at Devils Den, but their leader, Hood, was wounded in the battle. The fight for Little Round Top was stopped by the Union, but not before the Union troops had to be re-enforced when Texas troops almost collapsed their defenses. This was Hoods Texas Brigade's contribution to the civil war and Gettysburg and these battles cemented their place in history along with their fathers. The Battle of Gettysburg lasted three days and was the deadliest battle of the Civil War.
