The side without the higher ground would most likely have more casualties and would quickly lose more men due to gun shots. Chamberlain’s regiment was up against Confederate General John B.

Chamberlain’s regiment ran out of ammo, and he issued a bayonet charge, by running down the hill with bayonets, hoping to frighten the Confederate army and make them retreat, which would then knock out the opposing soldiers, securing General Meade’s incoming charge (Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain 1). It was a huge gamble on Chamberlain’s part, because if he wouldn’t have succeeded the charge, that could have costed them having control of Little Round Top, and possibly the whole battle, which could have then gave the Confederates the victory of the Civil War. After Chamberlain’s heroic defense at Little Round Top, the Union army held the higher ground, thus making the outcome for a Union…
