It's my understanding that Pickett's Charge is still seen by many southerners as the greatest moment in the history of "the war against northern aggression". The fact that it was an abysmal failure is irrelevant. What matters is that the southerners showed their mettle even as they stared into the pit of hell.

I thought the Banzai analogy more apt at the time but I believe Pickett's charge is more in keeping with the spirit of the thing.
