Special emphasis is placed on the common soldiers on both sides, especially the non-Virginia attackers outside of Pickett?s Virginia Division. These fighters? moments of cowardice, failure, and triumph are explored using their own words from primary and unpublished sources. Without romance and glorification, the complexities and contradictions of the dramatic story of Pickett's Charge have been revealed in full to reveal this most pivotal moment in the nation?s life" -- From Amazon.com.
