I thought that now would be a good a time as any to introduce myself as the new Pickett forum host, so, a big hello and a warm welcome to the Pickett forum.
I’ve titled my first post on this forum as ‘a re-evaluation of Pickett’. My reason for doing so is because (and it’s just a hunch) that Picketts role throughout the war has attracted a great deal of negativity and ridicule. Does he really deserve the bad press or has he just been scapegoated for mistakes that weren’t necessarily his own doing?
So here’s the thing, I feel that it’s time to have an honest reappraisal, let’s see if we can elevate Pickett to the Lofty heights that the name Custer enjoys.
I’m looking forward to reading all of your posts.
