One has a hard time coming up with any kind of excuse for erecting a monument to George Pickett. Gettysburg aside, his military accomplishments were meager at best.

Worst of all was his murder/execution of Prisoners of War, mostly due to his own embarrassment at being badly whipped by Union forces.

After the war he fled like a coward to Canada to avoid the justice he richly deserved, but his old friend and then President US Grant pardoned him.

Pickett was a weak man, an incompetent general and a murderer.

No, he does not deserve a monument in my opinion.
As a general, mediocre at best.
As to his confidence his attack at Gettysburg would succeed I have no opinion.
