More than 150 years after the event, the grand attack against the Union position on Cemetery Ridge still emotionally resonates with Gettysburg enthusiasts like no other aspect of the battle. On the afternoon of July 3, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee ordered more than 12,000 Southern infantrymen to undertake what would become the most legendary charge in American military history. This attack, popularly but inaccurately known as “Pickett’s Charge,” is often considered the turning point of the Civil War’s seminal battle of Gettysburg. Although much has been written about the battle itself and Pickett’s Charge in particular, Pickett’s Charge at Gettysburg is the first battlefield guide for this celebrated assault. One of the best new books about Gettysburg since Hessler’s “Sickles At Gettysburg”. AUTOGRAPHED by at least one of the Authors. The Gettysburg Museum of History provided some photographic and historical material for this book. This book has The Gettysburg Museum Of History’s highest recommendations.
