Did repeating rifles make a difference to pickets charge at Gettysburg?
Yes they contributed greatly to the union victory, while the union soldiers had access to repeating rifles the confederates did not which caused the subsequent decimation of the confederate soldiers at that engagment. Repeating rifles were not used during pickett's charge, only cavalry used repeating rifles. Confederate cavalry had repeating rifles.
