He became a major general in the Confederate States Army and is best remembered for leading the futile and bloody Confederate offensive on the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg that bears his name, Pickett's Charge.
The cottage is 400sq ft inside and furnished with antiques. It includes a queen bed, sitting area, dining table, kitchenette, and bath with shower. A screened porch completes the retreat.
