"I've painted many of these dramatic nighttime events at Gettysburg, but none kindles my imagination more than the brief ride Lee and General James Longstreet made together on the night of July 3rd. Hours earlier, Lee and Longsreet had watched as the courage and tragedy of Pickett's Charge unfolded - and devastated the heart of Lee's army. In the darkness of that Friday night, July 3, 1863, a ferocious thunderstorm rolled over Gettysburg. Storm Over Gettysburg captures that dramatic moment as Lee and Longsreet ride through the storm together, discussing Lee's next move. Should they stay and fight again, hoping somehow to win? Should they wait for a Northern counterattack? Should they retreat?" -Mort Kunstler
