The Memoirs of Henry Heth are by no means considered a classic in Civil War literature, nor are they widely read. However, Heth's writings contain plenty of anecdotal evidence for the oft-debated relationship between Armistead and Hancock. The Memoirs also reveal the surprising depth of Heth's bond with Ambrose Burnside. Armistead, Hancock, and Heth were all wounded at Gettysburg - Armistead, of course, did not survive.

Major General Henry Heth was a Confederate division commander who fought with the Army of Northern Virginia and is best remembered for starting the Battle of Gettysburg.
