Pickett's Charge
23 of 141
from  1988-1990, 12B, United States Military Academy West Point (Staff)/History Department  album
These three photos were taken on the ground covered by Maj. Gen. William Pickett's ill-fated assault at Gettysburg. The occasion was a staff ride for cadets enrolled in HI-351, the honors sections of the first half of the two-semester course of instruction on military history required of all USMA cadets. Cadets spread out on line in the first photo, prior to making the mile-long trek across what on July 3, 1863, had been well-cultivated cornfields. They are passing the midway point in the assault in the second photo. In the last photo, CPT Jim Embrey orders the cadets to advance at the double-quick as they draw to within about 200 yards of where the Union line was on that fateful day.
