Pickett and His Men [Illustrated] [NOOK Book]

Overview

Why do I write this book? To add my tribute to the memory of my hero husband and the noble men who fol lowed him through the trials, dangers and hardships of a four years' war. The impulse which moves me is love, and I have endeavored that nothing should be written unworthy of that motive.

Overview

Why do I write this book? To add my tribute to the memory of my hero husband and the noble men who fol lowed him through the trials, dangers and hardships of a four years' war. The impulse which moves me is love, and I have endeavored that nothing should be written unworthy of that motive. If anything expressed or implied shall give pain to any, whether he wore the gray or the blue, it is contrary to the purpose or the wishes of the author — contrary to the chivalrous soul of the soldier and patriot, George E. Pickett, whose courage and constancy this work is intended to commemorate. In the compilation of this record the reader must know that I could not bring personal witness to the events described. They are based upon the official and other re ports of eye-witnesses and participants. In treating of the maneuvers and engagements herein mentioned, I have excluded every disparaging statement which the facts of history and justice to all participants would possibly permit. I have purposely avoided reading histories of the conflict by authors on both sides, and based my own narrative upon original material, to avoid the possibility of traveling over ground already covered by others. Upon the battle-field I visited last year grew a wonderful wealth of white daisies, piled drift upon drift like the banks of snow that glitter in the light of the winter sun. So blossom the flowers of peace and love and hope in the hearts which yet fondly cherish the memory of the long-gone days of darkness and of blood.
