"At some point a witness wrote, "Longstreet pointed out to us the rail fence upon which he sat when he gave the order to Pickett to make his celebrated charge." Later on that same tour Longstreet caught site of the marker indicating where General Louis Armistead had fallen. He was surprised and gratified to know that there was a movement to place a monument on the spot..."
