New in paperback, but originally published in 1997, this study represents one of the more original and important works of scholarship to have analyzed the connection between history and memory. The story of Pickett's Charge is told both from a mythical and factual perspective. The text concludes that our conception of the climax at Gettysburg is a convoluted mix of history and memory.
