GETTYSBURG is equipped to operate offensively in a high density, multi-threat environment as an integral member of a carrier battle group or surface action group. GETTYSBURG is capable in multiple warfare areas including air defense, undersea warfare, surface warfare and strike warfare. GETTYSBURG is equipped with the AN SPY- IB phased array radar. This radar system incorporates sig- nificant advances in the detention capabilities of the Aegis Weapon System, particularly in its resistance to enemy electronic countermeasures. Using the SPY- IB and ship ' s Mark 99 fire control system, GETTYSBURG can guide its vertically launched Standard Missisles to intercept hostile aircraft and missiles at extended ranges. To provide point defense against hostile air tragets, GETTYSBURG is equipped with the Phalanx Close In Weapons System (CIWS). GETTYSBURG is equipped with a potent USW com- bat system. Long-range land attack cruise missile capa- bility is provided by Tomahawk missiles, which are launched from the Vertical Launching System. Harpoon anti-ship cruise missiles are capable of destroying hostile surface ships well beyond the horizon. The two 5 " 54 cal- iber guns, in conjunction with the Mark 86 Fire Control System are used against surface ships, air contacts, and to support forces ashore. GETTYSBURG ' S weapons are supplemented by the AN SLQ-32V(3) electronic warfare suite, which includes passive detection systems, decoys, and active electronic countermeasures. USS GETTYSBURG is powered by four quick response LM2500 gas turbine engines coupled to two controllable, reversible pitch propellers. This com- bination give GETTYSBURG tremendous maneuver- ability and a top speed in excess of 30 knots.

Lee would ever march his men, and it proved to be a crushing blow to the South. The Union victory at the small town in njral Pennsylvania affected politics around the world. The Confederate defeat at Gettysburg dashed their hopes once and for all, that European powers would recognize the South as an independent state. The war lasted nearly two long years beyond Gettysburg, and General Lee would once again lead his forces to victory, but never again on Northern soil. The tide of the Confederacy began to ebb when the Union soldiers, giving their " full measure of devotion, " stood firm at the Angle and repulsed Pickett ' s charge. Gettysburg became a battlefield more by chance than by design. On June 3rd, after his stunning victory at Chancellorsville against a vastly superior force, Lee marched north again in an attempt to take pressure off Vicksburg, then under siege. He passed through western Maryland and into Pennsylvania, with Harrisburg, its capital, as the objective. Union forces under General Joseph Hooker paralleled his route in order to protect Washington and Baltimore, but Hooker resigned as Commander of the Army of the Potomac and was succeeded by General George Gordon Meade. Lee ordered his army, by then almost at the Susquehanna River, to turn back toward Cashtown, and units of the two armies met by chance at Gettysburg on June 30th. The next day the battle was on as Confederates drove the Union through Gettysburg to a line formed by Gulps Hill, Cemetery Ridge, and Little Round Top south of town. Lee moved his forces to Seminary Ridge, almost a mile fromo the Union Une, placing them in a north- south arc that stretched almost five miles. The fighting that started late on July 2nd continued until 10 o ' clock at night as Lee sought to turn the Union flanks before Meade could concentrate all his forces. General James Longstreet, who was to attack the critical left flank, would spend the remainder of his life denying that his delays cost the Confederacy a victory at Gettysburg; but it was not until 4 P.M. that his cannon roai-ed into action preceding the attack. By then, fresh Union troops had moved into the Wheat field and Devil ' s Den, names that by nightfall would become immortalized by the blood of thousands of dead and wounded soldiers. Nor was General Dick Ewell ' s attack on the other flank an unmitigated success; it lacked coordination and was bogged down as additional infantry units and cannons joined General Meade ' s line of blue. Delays had cost Lee a decisive victory. July 3rd, Union regulars regained ground on their right flank, putting both flanks in almost impregnable positions. This forced Lee to make a frontal assault on the center of the Une, where a breakthrough would divide the Union army and win the battle. Longstreet had objections, as he always did, but Lee was determined. " The enemy is there, and I am going to strike him. " he said, pointing to Cemetery Ridge. What followed has gone down in history as a symbol of Southern courage, under the name of Pickett ' s Charge. Seen from either side of the battlefield, from the Angle and the Copse of Trees on Cemetery Ridge, the heroism of the charge was evident. Almost a mile of open field slpes gradually down from one ridge and up to the other. There is no protection, no place to pause. The wave of 12,000 gray men, led by bright regimental flags, advanced at a walk most of the distance, their lines being shredded by double canister shells and sharp shooting riflemen in the Union defenses. The Rebels charged at a nan only for the last quarter-mile into a baiTier of smoke created by the deadly firing from the ridge ahead. It was a magnificent en " oi-t that almost worked. The Confederates breached the blue Union line neai- the Copse of Trees but were too few and too exhausted to hold the ground. The farthest point that the Confederates were able to advance up Cemetery Ridge has become knowTi as the " high water mai ' k " of the Confederacy. As they drew back across the open field their casualties continued to mount, and when the 50 minutes of combat was over, more than 5,000 Confederate soldiers had fallen. The next day was the 4th of July, the birthday of the United States, and the battle did not resume. Lee ' s losses during the three days of battle, a staggering 28.000, represented more than a third of his 75,000 man army. Lee could no longer press the fight and ordered the retreat. Meade, who had lost 23,000 of his 97,000 men pursued, but the chase was rendered ineffective by Confederate rear-guai ' ds and heav ' rains. Lee ' s retreat was made even more bitter by the dispiriting news that Vicksburg had fallen and the South was cut in two. It was apparent that Gettysburg had been a serious Confederate defeat, but it was not until later in the war, that the real significance of the battle was understood. Today, the battle is widely recognized as the turing point for the Civil Wai " . A tnae milestone in our country ' s history, the Battle of Gettysburg ultimately ensured the presei-vation of the American Republic.

Dumbfounded and unbelieving, the World watched as the greatest nwnuments to American prosperity, the twin towers of New York ' s World Trade Center, and its central bastion of military might. The Pentagon, were cast down amidst smoke and rubble. The pictures were there in front of us. clear in the morning light and brutally honest, yet the accompanying words seemed hollow and incomprehensible ... terrorists had taken over three separate airliners and plunged them into these landmarks, with cold disregard for the lives of the innocent. A fourth plane had crashed in the wooded hills of Penn- sylvania, stopped only by the heroics of its doomed passengers from wreaking even more destruction. The heart of our most populous city lay bathed in glass, dust, and blood as its citizens gasped desperately for air. literally choking on the ruins themselves. Thousands dead. Countless more injured. It was the worst attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor, and worse than that even, for it came at the hands of a faceless enemy. We. the GETTYSBURG, watched and mourned with our countrymen, who, though an ocean away, stayed bound fast by our sides by a flag and a purpose. To our fall- en brothers and sisters, know this: We will never forget. " The resolve of our great nation is being tested. But make no mistake: We will show the world that we will pass this test. God bless. " - President George W. Bush, Septem- ber J J, 2001. y • ' .rtHifiT WMi ' {..

They will be exposed, and they will discover what others in the past have learned: Those who make ' war against the United States have chosen their own destruction.
