Assessing the myths and facts surrounding Pickett's charge, Carol Reardon explores why this event endures so strongly in the American imagination. She demonstrates that the story told today of the charge is really an amalgam of history and memory and that the evolution of that mix has much to tell about how the past of the USA can be understood.
