Midpoint of the War: May to July 1863
Gettysburg: The Third Day
How long was Pickett’s line?
Ten brigades were assembled. Edward Porter Alexander sketched them as follows:
Brockenbrough, Davis, McGowan, Archer, Garnett, Kemper
Lane, Scales, Armistead,
Off they marched, roughly 14,000 Confederates engaged in the single most desperate military venture of the war, perhaps even of the century.
