Notable George Pickett Quotes

"Well, it is all over now. The battle is lost, and many of us are prisoners, many are dead, many wounded, bleeding and dying. Your Soldier lives and mourns and but for you, my darling, he would rather, a million times rather, be back there with his dead, to sleep for all time in an unknown grave." (Said in a letter to his fiancee after Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg)
