ole,

I agree with you there, for the reasons you mentioned. And I always had trouble with the "We tried the left flank, and the right flank, let's try the center" theory--to me, that doesn't sound like Lee. However, it sounds more like Lee to me to add,"And let's see what damage we can do to Meade's army before we head south." I had never thought about that before, but that makes more sense. True, Lee was not feeling his best physically, and he was also still learning tactics and strategy without his "right arm," but I never pictured him as, well, dithering on that decision to stay. He was tenacious, but not to the ridiculous point.
