Carol Reardon:
Pickett's Charge in History and Memory (Civil War America) - edition reliée, livre de poche

ISBN: 0807823791

[SR: 1294195], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780807823798], The University of North Carolina Press, The University of North Carolina Press, Book, [PU: The University of North Carolina Press], The University of North Carolina Press, If, as many have argued, the Civil War is the most crucial moment in our national life and Gettysburg its turning point, then the climax of the climax, the central moment of our history, must be Pickett's Charge. But as Carol Reardon notes, the Civil War saw many other daring assaults and stout defenses. Why, then, is it Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg—and not, for example, Richardson's Charge at Antietam or Humphreys's Assault at Fredericksburg—that looms so large in the popular imagination?As this innovative study reveals, by examining the events of 3 July 1863 through the selective and evocative lens of 'memory' we can learn much about why Pickett's Charge endures so strongly in the American imagination. Over the years, soldiers, journalists, veterans, politicians, orators, artists, poets, and educators, Northerners and Southerners alike, shaped, revised, and even sacrificed the 'history' of the charge to create 'memories' that met ever-shifting needs and deeply felt values. Reardon shows that the story told today of Pickett's Charge is really an amalgam of history and memory. The evolution of that mix, she concludes, tells us much about how we come to understand our nation, Pickett's Charge--the Confederates' desperate (and failed) attempt to break the Union lines on the third and final day of the Battle of Gettysburg--is best remembered as the turning point of the U.S. Civil War. But Penn State historian Carol Reardon reveals how hard it is to remember the past accurately, especially when an event such as this one so quickly slipped into myth. She writes, "From the time the battle smoke cleared, Pickett's Charge took on this chameleonlike aspect and, through a variety of carefully constructed nuances, adjusted superbly to satisfy the changing needs of Northerners, Southerners, and, finally, the entire nation."

Détails sur le livre
Pickett's Charge in History and Memory

As the author notes, the Civil War saw many daring assaults and stout defenses other than Pickett's Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg. Why then, is it this maneuver--and not, for example, Richardson's Charge at Antietam or Humphrey's Assault on Fredericksburg--that looms so large in the popular imagination? This innovative study reveals why Pickett's Charge endures so strongly. 23 illustrations.
