Reb.. Very funny article =+++

The South was a genteel aristocracy, filled with Southern charm and civilization, where there was chivalry and honor among gentlemen, as long as you didn’t include the poor farmers and slaves that by far outnumbered the aristocracy (who, in fact, didn’t count them).

Yeah lets go back to the plantation system , as long as im one of the rich plantation owners , not one of the slaves or poor farmers around said plantation .

Everyone seemed to realize that the coming attack was a monumentally bad idea. Longstreet knew it. The field officers knew it. Most of the local wildlife and rocks knew it. But not George Pickett. Even today, this one attack is still looked on by students of history as a perfect example of Southern courage, honor, tenacity, and stupidity.

My thoughts on Pickets charge are finally confirmed :D)(90
