    Default Battle of Gettysburg... help!

    So I am doing an extensive research project for school which includes a 6-8 page paper in MLA formatting, an oral presentation, along with a visual presentation(powerpoint, for me). My topic is about the Battle of Gettysburg and why it is significant to the Union's success of the American Civil War and the types of weapons and warfare used to be successful in the battle. I have a bunch of information in books but I don't know where to start. What I was hoping to do was find a list of the individual battles within the Battle of Gettysburg and start there with an outline(mandatory, and due Monday). Now that there is some background info for you guys, do you guys know of any sites that will be helpful. Our teachers, for the most part, only let us use government sites and organizations. Any help is appreciated, I just need to get a source listing those battles. I have tried Gale Group and Smithsonian. I haven't gotten very far. Oh, and did I mention that this paper is what determines if I pass my junior year? I really need some help. Thanks guys.

    Because I'm already sick and the color scheme must have set me off. Sorry about that.

    And don't forget to include your main points briefly mentioned on your introductory paragraphs and to restate them in your conclusion paragraphs.

    Thank you. I have used the second one already actually, but I didn't find the first one on my own and it looks like it will be helpful

    I think that if I ever open a Restaurant, that would be near Gettysburg and I would call it "The Gettysburger".

    The front door image would be a hamburger full of ketchup and a Blue Cheeseburger fighting.

    With an awesome historical theme, full of Gettysburg-themed decorations, and blue cheeseburgers.... I would DEFINITELY visit your establishment!

    I love quaint pubs with historical themes. (I also love burgers and blue cheese!) There used to be a cafe in Minneapolis called "European Grind". The tables all had super old maps of Europe under the glass, and there wasn't a single decoration in there that wasn't at least a couple hundred years old. It closed down and was replaced by either a Starbucks or a Caribou... I was soooo sad
