Tune in on Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at 1 PM as Aull Center staff share their research on the 7th West Virginia Infantry Regiment as part of their series on West Virginia and the Civil War!

The 7th West Virginia Infantry Regiment was an infantry regiment that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War. For much of the war, it was a part of the famed “Gibraltar Brigade” in the Army of the Potomac. It was famed primarily for two major actions, a determined charge on the Sunken Road at Antietam and a late evening counterattack on East Cemetery Hill at Gettysburg that helped push back an attack by the Louisiana Tigers.
