A second assault took place later in the day against the northern end of the Federal line, at Cemetery and Culp’s hills. General George Meade, the Federal commander of the Army of the Potomac, was happy with his strong defensive line and focused his efforts on shifting reinforcements to counter the Rebel attacks. The fighting on the Round Tops was crucial to the battle, for if the Rebels had captured Little Round Top, the Federal position could not have been held.
