Soldier of the South: General Pickett's War Letters to His Wife

Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1928. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, of this compilation of General George Pickett's letters to his wife sent by him during and after the American Civil War (some wear and staining to the boards, some foxing to the first several pages, some light wear and darkening to the spine label -- but the label is complete). A career soldier, Picket left the Union Army and joined the confederates. He is best-known for leading "Pickett's Charge", a futile and bloody Confederate offensive on the third day of the critical Battle of Gettysburg, a battle which brought the largest number of casualties of any battle during the entire war and considered by many to have been the war's turning point; a nice volume providing an intimate look at one of its major combatants. Very good. Item #2859
