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.
The book was good wish it was longer. Also not a lot of war data narriator said it was left out on purpose. Emotionaly listing felt good . I liked the nature of the writing and the fact that few narriator insertions were made.
This is a great collection of letters from George Pickett, he's quite the writer and this audiobook really brought him to life to me. The reader does a fantastic job, everything moves along pretty quickly so there is no need to worry about it becoming dull. I highly recommend to any Civil War buff.
