After their marriage in 1863 she accompanied him to his new assignment as head of the Department of North Carolina, headquartered in Petersburg.

Decades after General Picketts death, Sallie became a well-known writer and speaker on her Soldier, eventually leading to the creation of an idealized Pickett who was the perfect Southern gentleman and soldier. A considerable amount of controversy attends Sallie Picketts lionizing of her husband. Two books published posthumously in her husbands name, The Heart of a Soldier, As Revealed in the Intimate Letters of Genl George E. Pickett (1913) and Soldier of the South: General Picketts War Letters to His Wife (1928), have been described as unreliable works that were fictionalized by Picketts wife.

(Sallie was also the author, under her own name, of Pickett and His Men, 1899.) As a result, General Pickett has become a figure partially obscured by Lost Cause mythology. Her other works include: Literary Hearthstones of Dixie (1912) and What Happened to Me (1917).
