COMMEMORATION OF GENERAL GEORGE E. PICKETT'S
January 23, 2010
a handsome group and they all look so happy! No doubt the reason for
smiles is the excellent company, delicious food and the occasion. The
speaker, John Michael Priest, talked about Pickett and his troops at
Gettysburg. After his presentation, Mike signed first editions of his
book, "Into the Fight: Pickett's
Charge at Gettysburg."
Our guest speaker,
John Michael Priest (Mike) took advantage of the beautiful granite bench
which Stephen Lang donated to The Pickett Society in 2008 in memory of
Michael Shaara and the soldiers who fought at Gettysburg in 1863. As we
all know, Stephen portrayed Gen. Pickett in the movie "Gettysburg." Stephen’s
current movie, "Avatar," is nominated for nine Academy Awards
and is a credit to his superb acting abilities.
W. Michael Pickett,
William P. Pickett, W. Daniel Paterson, Jr. are pleased that the new
marker contains no historical errors as did the prior one.
Pat Wood offered
the invocation following Dwight Wood’s welcome. “There
was a thing to do . . . Now it is done and the High song is over.”
