Which Gettysburg Civil War General are you?

When listening to Licensed Battlefield Guides and rangers talk about Civil War generals that fought in the Battle of Gettysburg or seeing their pictures in museums, it’s easy to forget that these generals were real people with normal lives before the Civil War. In fact, they might have been a lot like you. Their distinctive personalities guided them as they made tough calls during the three-day battle that took place in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Are you goal-oriented like General Robert E. Lee, strong and opinionated like General James Longstreet, or perhaps you’re short-tempered and brazen like General Daniel E. Sickles. Take this quiz to find out which Civil War general is most like you based on your personality.

    Greetings from the UK! I have just made my third visit to Gettysburg, the place fascinates me. I visit other CW battlefields as well but Gettysburg just keeps calling me back. On my office wall is a framed portrait of John Buford, someone who I admire greatly. So, imagine my delight when doing this quiz I’m told that the General I am closest to is John Buford! I am going around with a big daft smile on my face now.

    Awesome. To be compared to “Marse Robert” in way is a profound complement.
