Overview

Pickett's Charge was an infantry assault ordered by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee against Maj. Gen. George G. Meade's Union position on July 3, 1863, the last day of the Battle of Gettysburg. Arguably an avoidable mistake from which the Southern war effort never fully recovered psychologically, much has been written as to why Lee had to make the charge, about his commander’s reluctance to make the charge and about the Confederate soldiers that took part in the charge. In Pickett’s Charge: The Untold Story, author Bruce Mowday explores the story of what the heroic Union soldiers, led by General Alexander Webb, had to endure during this assault by Southern forces, a story that deserves recognition and has been overshadowed for more than a century by books and articles on General Robert E. Lee’s forces. The book contains images made public for the first time from the J. Howard Wert Gettysburg Collection™ and The American Heritage and History Virtual Museum.
