The idea of a three-pronged attack on the third day is a relatively recent "discovery." Whatever the plans, they were poorly coordinated and simply didn't work as intended.

Ashbel: Appreciate your observation and explanation of high ground. Any rise, however slight, overlooking an open area makes a killing field. Haven't been to Gettysburg yet, but thoroughly understand that Cemetery Ridge isn't that much of a height. The attacking force has a thin, horizontal line up there as a target. That thin, horizontal line has an expanse of advancing troops as targets.
