Tall tale of the Civil War (a century afterward)
“In the yellow dark of an Alabama nursing home, an old, old man opened
two remarkable eyes…” So begins Pickett’s Charge, an improbable novel about the legacy of the Civil War.
A hundred years after Threadgill Pickett travelled as a boy to join the Confederate Army, he takes a journey to confront with the only other surviving veteran, a former Union soldier, in Maine.
