Author Charles McNair has written Pickett's Charge,  - essentially summarizing the history of the South through the blurry perspective of one old man, a character developed as the oldest living Confederate veteran.  This man is hell-bent on heading north to kill the oldest living Yankee.  But in the end, the book is really about reconciliation, redemption and forgiveness.

And especially now - 150 years after the war - this book helps demonstrate how much America has really changed and what it means to be America.
