“Picketts Charge” on the center of the Union lines during the Battle of Gettysburg has been immortalized, memorialized, etc., yet the Union advances towards Marye’s Heights during the Battle of Fredericksburg has not. Each advance was ill advised and futile but one receives more credit than the other. Why? Any thoughts?
Edit: On a side note to this, I was talking with my uncle since posting this thread and found out one of our ancestors was wounded at the Battle of Fredericksburg and subsequently died from those wounds a month later. I knew of an ancestor who was captured by the Confederates and died in captivity but this other info was new to me.
