What was the Purpose of Gettysburg?
The Confederate needed another victory deep in Union territories. This will show that the Confederacy was a powerful country, and this will get the recognition from foreign countries, such as Great Britain and France. In addition, the victor of this war will also have the power to rule the entire United States, including the Confederate States.
Again, the victor of this battle will show who has the power to rule the entire country, including the Confederate States. The Union needed to reunite the country, so this would be the time to do this. In addition to this, the Union needed to stop the Confederate Army from invading the North again. (The first time was ended in the Battle of Antietam.)

After the Battle of Chancellorsville, in which the Confederate Army won, Robert E. Lee needed another victory in Union territory. This battle was the second in his plan for invading the North. In addition, if the Confederacy won this, it would give them the attention from foreign countries, such as France and Great Britain. The win would prove that the Confederate States were powerful enough to take over the entire United States because Gettysburg was so deep.
