Pickett's Charge

150 years ago today, Pickett's charge was turned back by Union forces, effectively ending the Battle of Gettysburg and, along with the surrender of Vicksburg in the west 150 years ago tomorrow, turning the tide of the war to eventual Union victory. Yes, this rendition of Pickett's Charge by Eric Schmidt is way too big to be called a vignette, and there are other more vig-like MOCs of the Civil War and of Gettysburg specifically, but I thought it was appropriate to feature this here today. If you are interested in this era of history, there's going to be a big collaborative display at BrickFair next month, celebrating the sesquicentennial of Gettysburg.
