Over the hills and far away.
Unfortunately I’m unable to attend the chat room for the Pickett discussions, I think the chat room will start about 3:00am my time so it’s a little late for me. I have however watched the video and found it to be very informative.
Will there be a transcript of the chat available at a later date, I’d be very interested to know what folk think about Picketts motivation for the atrocities carried out at Kinston. I personally believe that he was using the hangings as a distraction for his own failure at Five Forks and that he was using fear to regain some form of control/authority over his men.
Anyhow, many thanks for posting the video.
