Learned lots new
The couple, Gen. & Mrs. George Picket, late CSA, astounded me, and blew away my presuppositions and stereotypes. I didn't know of the Lincoln-Pickett link or or Marse Robert's Gettysburg coverup. Aptly titled, this book gives us a glimpse of George Pickett's human core.
Wanted to, yes. Did, no.
I wish Mrs. Pickett had seen fit to include letters from before 1860, perhaps some from when Pickett was commanding American troops in the Pig War standoff with Great Britain in 1859.
I almost made the error of switching off this audiobook before really giving it a chance, because the author, who is also the audio performer, has a high and weak voice. I'm glad I kept listening long enough to find out why, On my next listen, I'll be hearing the whole thing.
