USA: Confederate Army General Revealed to Be a Woman

gettysburg

Austin | George Edward Pickett, a Confederate Army General who played a major role in the last days of the Battle of Gettysburg, was in fact a woman. 

Newly disclosed information found in the last will of George Pickett’s father, Colonel Robert Pickett, proves without a doubt the confederate war general was a woman.

The discovery was made at an auction in Austin, Texas, this week as american historian Graham Brown got his hands on the precious document. The will proves without a doubt the famous general who participated in the Battle of Gettysburg was in fact Mary Sue Pickett, his older sister. It also appears clearly evident that George Edward Pickett was never part of any military enterprise, but instead, that his sister was in fact the real ‘man’ behind the legend.

Mary Sue Pickett, who was George Pickett’s senior by one year, was also known to suffer from a rare genetic disorder known as hypertrichosis, a condition where an excess of androgen creates a hormonal unbalance that results in female beard growth.

Official documents of the Pickett family released at the auction included documents confirming the death by tuberculosis of George Pickett at the tender age of 16. The death of the only boy of the family of eight possibly devastated his father, Colonel Robert Pickett, who dreamed of leaving a family military legacy behind him. “It was not uncommon at the time to fake documents or steal someone’s identity. What is truly interesting in this case, is that the former Colonel decided to send his daughter at the United States Military Academy in the place of his son and that she eventually showed to possess extraordinary military leadership” claims the Austin based historian.

Mary Sue Pickett, who was George Pickett’s senior by one year, was also known to suffer from a rare genetic disorder known as hypertrichosis, a condition where an excess of androgen creates an hormonal unbalance that results in female beard growth. “This particular condition played a great part in hiding her true identity to others throughout her adult life” admits John Adams White, an american Civil War historian and expert, who was the first to point out discrepancies in George Pickett’s biography. “The discovery of the will of Colonel Robert Pickett finally explains important anachronistic elements of the man’s life” he concedes.

    Wow! Incredible news!

    Interesting. But Pickett was supposed to have been married 3 times and produced 4 children. Would think that women who were married to Pickett would notice “he” was a woman and not a man. ;)

      Are you saying lesbians can’t find ways to get pregnant?

    • Tony Ridgway on August 4, 2014 at 2:27 am said:

      No, that’s not at all what Vivian said. She said that it is suspect that the wife didn’t notice and say something. Being a lesbian was not nearly as accepted as it is today, and any woman who married a man, only to find out their husband was a lady, would almost certainly have freaked out.
      Yes, there is a slight chance said wife was cool with it, but it’s marginal at best.

    I don’t agree with Vivian, there are ways to get pregnant with other men. They probably knew he was a she, it’s obvious.

  4. Pickett? Of Pickett’s Charge? This is fascinating!

    So, does that mean the Battle of Gettysburg can now be blamed on a women?

      That should be a “woman” not a “women”. And yes you are a moron.

      Ahem.

      That should be ‘woman,’ not ‘women.’

    • Shawn on July 29, 2014 at 1:53 am said:

      Nope, this cannot be blamed on Pickett in any form, whether man or woman. Lee ordered the charge, on the 3rd day of battle. Pickett’s division played little to no part in the first few days of battle, this is why they were given the order, they were rested. If you are too lazy to read, watch Gettysburg. Farly accurate description, sort of. The general outline matches

      It was probably blamed on women either way.

    it was not uncommon in the back hills of the south to have a girl raised as a boy if the family did not have or lost their only son. women could not own land and therefore a son was needed to pass the land on. it happened more than people think.

      It’s not unheard of for women to pee standing too, when they’re a tad unsophisticated. And Pickett would have been a right fool to pee seated if she was faking male gender… her fanny would show.

    • I sit down to piss, and I am all man. It’s easier to aim that way

    Interesting. Possible yes. Importance to the out come of the brutal war? None. The industrial North had the advantage once the war passed the first year. The South could not keep up with the production of Northern industries and farming.

    Jenny Brown dressed as a man and fought beside her husband John Brown in the Revolutionary War. Often the men of the “unit” knew, as they sometimes came from the same geographic area. Let’s be serious, how else would a solider dress?

    This explains why Pickett’s charge was such a disaster.

    As to standing or sitting doesn’t mean a thing because it was common for English men to sit while going #1. Personally, unless there were 6 plys of ass gaskets available, I wouldn’t sit.

    As someone mentioned above it was Lee’s gamble to attack the front,not Picketts. Fatigue played a big role in that. I toured the battlefield at the time of year when hardly anyone was around, it was humbling to stand at the “high water mark” of the Confederacy and the other locations on the battlefield. Just think if Lee’s artillery was accurate prior to Pickett’s charge it just might have turned the battle in favor of the Confederates. It doesn’t matter anyway, many southerners still glory at the thought of having slaves again. The gene pool is still there, not very far removed from the bottom dwellers of the Confederacy. Actually, I would like for the red states to succeed from the Union, that way we won’t have to keep them propped up financially anymore. Could you imagine them without other states and federal assistance? They have very little gratitude.

    Ah. So now we are to unperson George Picket and now acknowledge Mary Sue in our newthink attempt to rectify the past. We can now shed any misconceptions we have been burdened with due to exposure to oldthink and its’ ignorance of the Recdep’s correct accounting of history. George Picket was a woman, was always a woman and if any of us should fell compelled to engage in thoughtcrime to the contrary we will soon be visited by the Thinkpol and delivered to the Miniluv for corrective action so we can crimestop. We can live out the rest of our days at Joycamp for the benefit of all our brothers. Ingsoc and Amsoc forever!

    Here’s a thought. Just a thought. Maybe Pickett was a hermaphrodite. It’s possible.
