As the author notes, the Civil War saw many daring assaults and stout defenses other than Pickett's Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg. Why then, is it this maneuver--and not, for example, Richardson's Charge at Antietam or Humphrey's Assault on Fredericksburg--that looms so large in the popular imagination? This innovative study reveals why Pickett's Charge endures so strongly. 23 illustrations.
