The unexpected Union victory in the largest battle ever fought in North America was the last time Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee was on the strategic offensive. The Battle of Gettysburg demonstrates the power of team alignment, reflects the danger of lost opportunities, and offers penetrating insight into the importance of holding the high ground, communicating clear intent, and the critical role played by leaders of character in driving organizational success.
