The Battle of Gettysburg involved the largest number of casualties of the entire Civil war and is often described as the war's turning point. Between 46,000 and 51,000 soldiers lost their lives during the three-day Battle. To honor the fallen soldiers, President Abraham Lincoln read his historic Gettysburg Address and helped those listening by redefining the purpose of the war.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Bardwell in Suffolk, so named with an unattested Old English byname Bearda, a derivative of beard ( see Beard ) + Old English well(a) ‘spring’, ‘stream’. Alternatively, the first element may be from a dissimilated form of Old English bre(o)rd ‘brim’, ‘bank’.
