1863: The Battle of Gettysburg ended as Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee tried to break the Union line with several attacks, including the disastrous last-ditch effort known as ‘Pickett’s Charge.’ Over 7,000 Confederate soldiers were captured or killed within an hour of that charge. Lee retreated a day later. The Battle of Gettysburg was considered the turning point in the American Civil War.

1884: Dow Jones & Co., the world’s first stock index, launched as  published its first stock average. The index was composed of nine railroads and two industrial companies.

1890: Idaho was admitted to the Union as the 43rd state. President Abraham Lincoln originally established  Idaho territory in 1863 after thousands of prospective miners settled in the area during the Gold Rush.
