Flowers left for George Pickett
Gen. George W. Pickett, whose division of Virginians made the wonderful assault upon Cemetery Hill at Gettysburg, left a widow with no means of support. Gen. Grant, who was Pickett's classmate at West Point, secured the widow's appointment to a clerkship in the Quartermaster General's office. It is now reported that Secretary Lincoln has directed her removal, on the ground that her late husband served in the Confederate army. If the report be true, then the ungenerous son of a generous father shoots with a pop gun of microscopic calibre. Lafayette Advertiser; Lafayette, Louisiana. May 6, 1882; Page Two.
