Pickett and His Men is LaSalle Corbell Pickett’s first published work, initiating a thirty-year career of lecture tours, eleven additional books, and pieces written for magazines like Cosmopolitan and McClure’s. Her husband, George Pickett, was a Confederate General in the Civil War. Pickett was one of the commanders of the infamous Pickett’s Charge, the costly Confederate offensive front on the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg. Kansas Senator William A. Harris (1841-1909), the recipient of this copy, served in the Confederate Army but deserted after the loss at Gettysburg. Harris held political offices from 1893-1903, after which he pursued various agricultural interests.
