Remember Old Virginia by Dale Galleon

Lying in the fields near the Spangler Farm, Pickett's men had been subjected first to the broiling sun and now to the artillery duel which caused the ground to tremble "as if shaken by anearthquake." Southeast of the farmhouse, Colonel Joseph Mayo, Jr. saw General George Pickett approaching. Pickett called out, "Up men, and to your posts! Don't forget today that you are from old Virginia."

All were inspired by General Pickett's words, including Colonel Waller T. Patton, commanding the 7th Virginia, a great uncle of General George S. Patton, Jr., of World War Two fame. With their colors held high, the Vrginians marched over the rise.

The Last Inspection by Dale Galleon

Having come up in column, the fifteen regiments of Major General George E. Pickett's Division had halted and were undergoing a formal weapons
inspection. In Kemper's Brigade, the men of Company A, 11th Virginia, executed the proper movements as the inspecting officer carefully
checked each man's rifled musket.

At the edge of the orchard, Pickett and two of his brigade commanders, Brig. Gens. Lewis A. Armistead and James L. Kemper, along with Colonel Eppa Hutton, acting commander of Brig. Gen. Richard B. Garnett's Brigade, are engaging in light-hearted banter. No formal orders had come down, but all knew that a fight was imminent and that as the only "fresh division" in the army, they would have a major role to play.

Before sundown, half the men in Pickett's three brigades would be killed, wounded, or captured in a gallant if futile attempt to break the Federal
line on Cemetery Ridge.

After General J.E.B. Stuart was killed in battle in 1864,he was replaced by General Hampton.Almost immediately he engaged the enemy.In early June of 1864 General Philip Sheridan led 6000 Federal cavalrymen on a mission to destroy a vital section of the Virgina Central Railroad. On the morning of June 11, Hampton and 5000 Confederate cavalrymen intercepted Sheridan's force at Trevilian Station in Virginia.The next day the outcome was decided
when a bold Confederate counterattack shattered the Federal line. On June 13th, Sheridan and his troops retreated without destroying the railroad.
