During my Monday visit to GB I walked the charge of Pettigrews (Marshalls) Brigade on July 3 and Hayes Brigade July 2. I'm always amazed/curious at what was going through the soldiers minds during these charges. These were all veterans, at least Hayes Brigade was, and had seen the elephant on numerous occasions. Would be interested in the psychological or thoughts of these individuals facing these charges. I can't imagine the thoughts these individuals had at the onset of the 2 charges. Was it pride in their army that they were invisible, naieviety, etc. Would like to hear comments. Facing these 2 locations myself, I don't know how I would have summoned up the courage.
