That's OK, I wanted to see what you had to say. There are some very informed people on this site and you certainly know your stuff. And, believe me, being the new kid on the block hasn't held me back from voicing opinions, either, as you can see.

So if we follow these premises to their conclusion, Lee did the only thing he could logically do. He 'went up the middle.' Which leaves only the question of whether he should have committed more troops. Beings Pickett's men were the only 'rested' troops, and since they came THAT CLOSE to breaking the line, maybe the guy really did the only thing he could really do at that point. Think how brilliant the move would be considered today had it succeeded.
