General Pickett at Gettysburg-- July 3, 1863
With shells bursting overhead and his courier falling wounded beside him, Major General George E. Pickett points, in disbelief, as wave after wave of his brave Virginia and North Carolina troops "melt" under the brutal assault of Union cannon and shot.
Afterward, when ordered by General Lee to prepare his division to receive a counterattack, Pickett responded, "General Lee, I have no division now!"
