Confederate General George Pickett - MTCS01 - Pickett's Charge was the climax of the Battle of Gettysburg (1863), and one of the most famous infantry attacks of the American Civil War (1861–1865). Lasting about an hour on the afternoon of July 3, 1863, it pitted 12,000 Confederates—including three brigades of Virginians under General George E. Pickett—against half that number of Union troops. On July 2, General Robert E. Lee had unsuccessfully attacked the Union flanks; in what even some of his own men perceived as a desperate gambit, he now attacked the center, asking his troops to cross an open field nearly three-quarters of a mile long. They were bloodily repulsed, losing half their number. The day after the attack a battered and desolate Confederate Army retreated back to Virginia, leaving the Union Army under command of General George Meade the claim to a Victory. Pickett held Lee responsible for the forlorn attack and never forgave his commanding officer. This unique reproduction of General Pickett comes in a wooden display case with the General's portrait on the front of the box while a battlefield map of Gettysburg is on the back.
