Pickett, LaSalle Corbell: Picket and His Men. Atlanta: Foote & Davies Co., 1900

Anm.: Anyone who peruses La Salle Corbell Pickett: Pickett's Men (three editions, the first published in Atlanta, 1900) or any of her autobiographical works, then reads those compilations of letters purportedly written by her husband, will readily discover that the voice that speaks from Heart of a Soldier and Soldier of the South is not George Pickett's, but his widow's. There are other clues to authorship beyond empirical evidence. Both Heart of a Soldier and Soldier of the South include letters that detail certain events with which Pickett could not have been conversant at the time he supposedly wrote. Other passages bear an uncanny similarity to the pu­blished and unpublished writings of his contemporaries. Occasionally material is lifted whole from Walter Harrison's Pickett's Men: A Fragment of War History (New York, 1870); the wartime letters of Pickett's artillery chief, Major James Dearing; and other sources. Another indication of authorship is that many of the published letters contain long passages mimicking the African-Ameri­can dialect of the mid-nineteenth century South. None of the extant Pickett letters contains such material - although stereotypical black dialect was a subject on which Mrs. Pickett wrote and lectured widely in her later years. Mrs. Pickett's involvement in rewriting her husband's letters was remarkably thorough. In Soldier of the South, she permitted the publication of three extant letters along with all but two of the letters originally published in Heart of a Soldier. It can be seen that she edited and embellished even the au­thentic missives, as if she could not bear to show the reading public material that did not contain her touch. For a more detailed study of her literary efforts, see Gary W. Gallagher, «A Widow and Her Soldier: La Salle Corbell Pickett as Author of the George E. Pickett Letters," VMH&B94 (1986): 329-44. See also Appendix B («The Pickett 'Letters"') in George R. Stewart, Pickett's Charge: A Micro­history of the Final Attack at Gettysburg, July 3, 1863 (Greenwich, Conn., 1963), 259-60. Because portions of the published letters appear to contain authentic material, selected passages have been incorporated into the present work when they tally with known facts, when they present a reasonably accurate account of events, and when they offer a plausible interpretation of Pickett's frame of mind (aus Longacre: Pickett, a.a.O., S. 182 Anm. 5).
