Pickett's Charge—The Last Attack at Gettysburg

This chapter describes Pickett's move towards Emmitsburg Road. Pickett had gone along the lines of his brigade telling the men that when the barrage lifted, they were expected to get in line quickly with a minimum of wasted effort. However, the bombardment had caused a considerable amount of demoralization and shaken nerves among Pickett's men. They also grappled with problems of alignment and direction of advance, for this was a complicated attack.
