I apologize if this has been covered and please provide link. I watched the the prequel to Gettysburg last night and wanted to know the list in order of all the federal brigades that assaulted the stonewall and casualties for each. In the movie it mainly focused on the Irish brigade and 20th Maine regiment. I read that the Irish brigade was the only one that got to the wall the closest, not only out of bravery but may have been because they preferred the smoothbore muskets over the rifles. Thanks!
