Robert E. Lee vs George Pickett (S2 E7)

In this episode, Licensed Battlefield Guides Eric and Jim explore the complex and challenging relationship between two Gettysburg icons Robert E. Lee and George Pickett. Often accounts place the events of the afternoon of July 3 as the cause of the strain in their relationship, but did the problems begin much earlier? The co-hosts delve into the life of George Pickett and take a detailed look at his relationship with Robert E. Lee before, during, and after the Gettysburg Campaign. In doing so, they challenge many long-held assumptions and myths, to provide a much clearer picture of the relationship between two individuals forever associated with July 3, 1863, and the charge that bears Pickett's name. The Battle of Gettysburg Podcast is hosted by Licensed Battlefield Guides Jim Hessler and Eric Lindblade.
