Book Discussion on Pickett’s Charge in History and Memory

Here’s Professor Carol Reardon of Penn State University in a 1997 interview on the C-SPAN show, “Booknotes” dealing with her book, Pickett’s Charge in History and Memory. It’s a terrific discussion. Unfortunately, the audio is not synched to the video.

The video’s description reads, “Carol Reardon talked about her book, Pickett’s Charge in History and Memory, published by the University of North Carolina Press. In the book, the author chronicles the Confederate attempt to break through the Union lines during the third day of the battle at Gettysburg. Ms. Reardon discussed the growth of myths around this event, and the difficulties of separating fact from fiction. Ms. Reardon is a professor at Pennsylvania State University.”
