Maj. Gen. George Pickett's Division was one of the largest in the Army of Northern Virginia. On 3 July, 1863 it suffered some 6,500 casualties – a rate greater than 50%. But the folly that now bears his name, "Pickett's Charge" also saw the Confederate's "High Water Mark."
Brigadier General Armistead’s advance was east of "The Angle" in the stone wall that defined the front and gave the Union men cover. He led the remnants of his brigade over that wall and briefly broke the Union line. Armistead was killed in the desperate hand-to-hand fighting the ensued. The Confederacy never threatened Northern soil again.
