THEY GAINED NOTHING BUT GLORY
Remember your ancestors today, between 2 and 2:30 150 years ago the mighty and fearless men of the South set out across a mile of open field under constant fire in what is known as Pickett’s Charge. Divine Providence had determined that it was not to be another in a series of magnificent victories today…
Many would never make it back to their lines, some made it back mangled and maimed, about one half of the thirteen to fifteen thousand made it back unscathed. Curse those that say these gallant men faced death to preserve slavery.
They would have stormed the very gates of hell had Lee asked them to do so. They fought for independence, they refused to pay the high tariffs placed on them by the Empire and because the Congress was dominated by the industrial North.
I seem to remember another group of slave owning Rebels seceding from England for the very same reasons in 1776.
Deo Vindice! Audemus jura nostra defendere!
