About the Book

Pickett’s Charge was the last best chance for a Confederate victory in the Civil War and came during the final day’s fighting at Gettysburg, July 3, 1863. While Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s greatest gamble has been told and retold, the heroic stand of the Union forces has received scant attention.

Released during this 150th anniversary of the epic battle of Gettysburg, Pickett’s Charge: The Untold Story tells the story of the heroic defenders of the Union and especially the Philadelphia Brigade and its commander General Alexander Webb.  Webb won a Congressional Medal of Honor for his valor that afternoon and later became President of the City College of New York. With the outcome of the Civil War in the balance, Webb and his fellow soldiers stopped the Confederates at a spot known as the High Water Mark of the Confederacy and saved the Union.
